Parenting programme for Polish parents and carers in Bedfordshire
THE NURTURING PROGRAMME
We are very pleased to offer a free parenting course for Polish parents and carers living in Bedfordshire
Start date: 22 January 2024, time 17.30 - 19.30
Venue: the course will be delivered online via Zoom
The Nurturing Programme is an evidence-based 10-week course for parents and carers that improves the emotional health of both adults and children and strengthens family relationships.
It is based upon four constructs or building blocks: self-awareness, appropriate expectations, positive discipline and empathy.
Over the 10-week programme participants will look at lots of different topics, including:
Understanding why children behave as they do
Recognising the feelings behind behaviours (ours and theirs)
Exploring different approaches to discipline
Finding ways to develop co-operation and self-discipline in children
Learning the importance of looking after ourselves
The 10-week programme was created by child psychologist Dr Stephen J Bavolek and is being further developed by Family Links, a national charity promoting families' emotional health and well-being.
We adapted the course content to Polish and successfully delivered it to groups and individuals across England and Wales!
The programme is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 3 to 12.
We are accepting referrals to the course now.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
The project is financed by the National Lottery Community Fund.
