Spotlight: Duke University
duke group
In collaboration with IY staff, researchers from the Center for Child and Family Policy at Duke University are completing a 120-classroom randomized trial to test the outcomes of two IY programs in combination: IY Teacher Classroom Management and IY Dinosaur Classroom Prevention Program.

Duke groupSo far, Incredible Years has trained teachers and assistants from 28 classrooms! The teachers expressed great enthusiasm for the project, and many have moved forward with certification in IY Dinosaur School.  The Duke staff are busy analyzing outcomes from the first year of implementation and preparing to begin work with a new cohort of teachers in 2017-18.

Seattle Basic Parent and Home Coaching Training  
October 17th-20th  

Join us in Seattle this fall for our Basic Parent Group Leader and Home Coaching workshop! This four day training includes the opportunity to learn and practice one-on-one interventions as well as group intervention.

Health Visitor Talking To Mother With Young ChildrenThe first portion of the training covers in depth the group-based BASIC Parenting
programs, which are designed to promote positive parenting strategies and assist parents
in managing children’s behavior problems. Three Incredible Years® Programs are covered in the BASIC Training: Toddler Parent Program, Preschool Basic Parent Program, and the early portion of School Age Basic Program.

In the second portion of the training, leaders will learn how to adapt the group
model to a one-on-one parent-coach model. The Home Coaching program can be used to
deliver the entire parenting curriculum or for a make-up session for parents who have missed a group session. The home coaching model is a good option if parents cannot attend a group due to schedule conflicts or if there is an extended delay before the next parent group will be offered. This model can also be used as a supplement to the group for parents who need additional coaching with their children.

Article of the Month:
Home Coaching
A recent report by Incredible Years Developer Dr. Carolyn Webster-Stratton explores home coaching model for IY parenting programs. 

research graphicThe home-based model appears to be particularly effective for high risk parents, parents with scheduling conflicts, or parents experiencing other interpersonal or health factors. It is believed that the flexibility and ease of delivering the IY model in a family’s home using many of the IY group-based principles will overcome many of the logistical and psychological barriers to accessing services.

Preliminary studies evaluating both these approaches suggests that the IY group plus home-based support serves to help parents sustain positive parenting changes in the longer term.
