Understanding Kids

What is it?

Understanding Kids is a 6 session group for parents and carers of primary aged children which has been developed to support their understanding and knowledge about children’s development and behaviour. This course provides parents with up to date, evidence-based explanations and strategies to help parents feel confident to manage their child’s difficulties and to help child develop and thrive.

What does the course involve?

  • First of all this is not group therapy, currently this is run as an online class.

  • NHS professionals teach you tried and tested (evidence-based) methods of supporting children’s social and emotional development, including managing children’s distress and behaviours which challenge.

  • You will receive free workbooks for each session

  • You do not have to share your personal experiences, although many parents do find this helpful.

  • You will not be asked to share your personal experiences

How will this help me?

  • This course will help you become more confident in helping your child develop their social, emotional and problem solving skills.

  • It will give you practical advice on how to cope with feelings of distress in children and insight into how distress can be expressed through behaviour (and what to do about it).

  • The course will show you how to use positive parenting techniques in day-to-day life in the context of supporting your child to thrive

  • The course will also give you an understanding of what behaviours are typical of children, and when to seek further help

The Workbook

You will be sent a workbook that goes alongside the group, which has spaces for you to write about your experiences and practice some of the strategies that we will discuss. This workbook is for you to keep and it is useful to bring it along with you to the group sessions.
