A research-based program for those who work with children, parents and families - helping parents to make a positive project out of themselves and reduce their anxious focus on their children/young people

About Course 3 Level 1

This training takes place after completing the prerequisite training that provides essential research and theoretical basis to the program

It starts with an intensive, which was originally two days of group training. This 16 hours of training fits into a four-week timeframe. It has been professionally filmed and edited and includes demonstrations and practise role-plays. (the online platform involves interactive learning - participant's can watch in segments to fit their schedule)

The next training period emphasizes program application. Trainees start using the manuals with parents and accessing four recorded supervision sessions relevant to each program session. 

Each month trainees can access a live online webinar with a case presentation &  Q & A with Dr Jenny Brown

At completion, within four months, it is possible to enrol in the shorter Level 2 Course 4 training, which allows for registration as a Parent Hope/Confidence Project Coach.

It is possible to move straight to the parent coach training without completing required theory training seminars if you have completed an in-depth training program in Bowen theory. Please email contact@parenthope.com.au to request an exemption, providing evidence of your previous training.
