Training Information

This training will prepare group leaders to implement our Baby Parenting Program. This 9-12 session program focuses on teaching parents how to provide nurturing parenting to babies including offering physical, tactile, verbal, and visual stimulation, coping with crying babies, safety proofing one’s house, and understanding the developmental needs of babies. Parents will learn about managing issues such as crying babies, feeding and diapering problems, and leaders will take advantage of the babies’ presence in the group to set up practices (for example, baby massage). The curriculum uses Dr. Webster-Stratton’s book Incredible Babies as the text for parents.

Home Visiting Coach Model

The Incredible Years® offers a Home Visiting Coach protocol for Baby, Toddler, Preschool, and School Age Basic Parent Programs. The Home Visiting Coach model can be used in conjunction with the group-based model, or the entire curriculum can be delivered with individual families entirely in the homes. Our Home Coaching manuals help facilitators tailor the content of the programs for individual delivery in the homes. To implement in the home, facilitators need the full program curriculum kit, plus the supplemental manual for home coaching. 

How To Use With Group Programs
  • To begin a parent’s learning if there is an extended delay before the next scheduled IY parent group begins.
  • To give parents a taste of the program in order to recruit them into the IY parent group.
  • To provide make-up sessions for parents who have missed group sessions due to illness or work schedules.
  • To enhance the IY parent group learning for high-risk families and/or child welfare referred families, and to provide additional vignettes and practices at home.
  • To deliver the entire parenting curriculum in the home.

Training Information

For the Baby, Toddler, Preschool, and School Age Basic Parenting Programs we have developed a home-visitor coaching model. This one-on-one parent-coach model can be used to deliver the entire basic parenting program or as a supplement for parents attending an Incredible Years® group. This home-visitor coaching model is a good option if parents cannot attend a parent group due to schedule conflicts, or if there is an extended delay before the next parent group will be offered. This model may also be used with parents who need some additional coaching at home with their children.

*This training is only available for participants who have previously attended Basic Parenting Program Group Leader Training.
