DADS Tuning in to Kids – MELBOURNE
July 5, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm$380
PRE-REQUISITE: The Dads Tuning in to Kids workshop is open to certified Tuning in to Kids facilitators only.
Dads Tuning in to KidsTM is an evidence-based adaptation of the widely used Tuning in to Kids® parenting program. It has been developed by Dr. Katherine Wilson, Dr. Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley in Melbourne, Australia, to be suitable for use by Tuning in to Kids trained facilitators who would like to offer father-only parenting groups.
The program focuses on the father-child emotional connection. It teaches fathers the skills in emotion coaching that are taught in Tuning in to Kids®, provides additional content particularly relevant to fathers, and suggests modifications to some program activities and processes.
Dads Tuning in to KidsTM has been strongly endorsed by fathers who have attended, with feedback that a fathers-only option is a very welcome addition to the parenting programs currently on offer. A randomised control trial of the program showed positive outcomes including improving parenting, parent-child relationships and child behaviour.
Trainees are asked to arrive at 8.45am for a 9.00am start – work will finish at 1.00pm. Morning tea will be provided.
