Incredible Years Programme

About This Project

This programme provides parenting support across Taranaki. BAF works with the Ministry of Education and alongside other community providers to deliver this programme.

The Incredible Years is a series of interlocking, evidence-based programmes for parents, children and teachers, supported by over 30 years of research.

The goal of the Incredible Years® programme is to prevent and treat young children’s behaviour problems and promote their social, emotional, and academic competence. The programmes are used worldwide and have been shown to work across cultures and socio-economic groups.Childhood behaviour problems, if left unchecked, can leave children at a greater risk in adulthood of unemployment, mental health problems, substance abuse, early pregnancy or early fatherhood, criminal offending, multiple arrests and imprisonment, higher rates of domestic violence and shortened life expectancy.

The parent programme consists of 14 weekly group sessions led by trained Group Leaders. The programme is well-structured and resourced to ensure that it is delivered with fidelity.
