Parenting programme for Polish parents and carers in Cheshire
The Nurturing Programme
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 a cognitive-relational programme, providing parents with new skills in listening and communicating with their children and developing an understanding of behaviour in the context of 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
We adapted the course content to Polish and we will deliver it in Polish for the first time in the North West region.
The programme is aimed at parents and carers of children aged 3 to 12 years old.
The course will be delivered in Crewe in the autumn this year. We are accepting referrals to the course now.
The project is financed by Comic Relief Community Fund and Cheshire East Council.
