Training participants for treatment groups should have a graduate degree in one of the following professions: social work, psychology, education, nursing, psychiatry, medicine, or have extensive experience working with families and children. For prevention groups, we recommend one leader have a graduate degree, and the second leader a bachelor’s level degree in a related field.
Preparing for a Training Workshop
Before attending the workshop be sure you have purchased the program curriculum and have previewed the manual and materials. This will ensure that you get the most from the training. We also offer self-study ‘getting started’ guides to help you prepare.Incredible Years Getting Started Guide (Parent Programs) Incredible Years Getting Started Guide (Child Programs)
