Strengthen your partnership with parents to support the wellbeing of students

Our parenting courses help parents move from worry about their children, to making a project out of themselves. This in turn supports student wellbeing and mental health. The schools package includes training for one staff member in the family systems approach, with facilitator training to deliver the Confident Parent Course to parent groups (12 hours of professional development).

The schools package also provides access to streaming resources to deliver parenting courses in your school community, including the one part Cultivating Confident Parenting, and the four-part Confident Parent Course. There is a welcome video for parents, a book discount for Dr Jenny Brown's Confident Parenting book, a copy of the Parenting with Clarity book, plus online support throughout the year.

Mentor sessions with our trainers are included in this package, with 2 x group mentor sessions to help you tailor the package to your unique school context, and support you in using the program.

I learned so much already about my own parenting - past, current, and hopefully, future - and also my therapeutic practice with kids and families. It is exciting to be turning upside down my thinking and approach to parenting and also supporting parents/caregivers in their efforts to raise children to be psychologically autonomous.

All four sections were excellent. I will be thinking about this for a long time. And I am looking forward to conversations I will soon be having with two supervisors who also took the course and come to it through studying Bowen Theory. Thank you very much Jenny Brown.

this was incredibly useful way of thinking about how we interact with our kids and the effect that we have on them. Whereas we may have intended to be helpful in certain situation, through this lens we can see we are actually undermining them and we can adjust our behavior accordingly.

“Parents, that have done it so far, say that they feel less pressured to have to fix everything, and have loved that the role plays have given concrete examples of everyday family life (so relatable for all of us:))”.
