Webinar: Incredible Years

Tuesday, Jan. 7, 2020
1–2:30 p.m. ET

The Incredible Years® is one of 16 evidence-based practices currently being reviewed by the Title IV-E Prevention Services Clearinghouse as a mental health intervention that could potentially be IV-E funded under the Family First Act. Join us and the experts from the Incredible Years® to learn more about their programs as they kick off our winter EBP series on January 7.

The Incredible Years® Parents, Teachers, and Children Training Series has two long-range goals.

  • To provide cost-effective, early prevention programs that all families and teachers of young children can use to promote social, emotional, and academic competence and to prevent children from developing conduct problems.
  • To provide comprehensive interventions for teachers and parents that are targeted at treating and reducing the early onset of conduct problems in young children.

The Incredible Years® evidence based parenting programs focus on strengthening parenting competencies and fostering parent involvement in children’s school experiences, to promote children’s academic, social and emotional skills and reduce conduct problems. The parenting programs are grouped according to age: babies (0–12 months), toddlers (1–3 years), preschoolers (3–6 years), and school age (6–12 years).

The Teacher Classroom Management program is for group leaders who plan to work with teachers of children ages 3–8 years. The focus is on strengthening teachers’ classroom management strategies, and promoting children’s prosocial behaviorschool readiness, and reducing children’s classroom aggression and noncooperation with peers and teachers. The program also helps teachers work with parents to support their school involvement and promote consistency between home and school.

The Incredible Years® child training programs use dinosaur-themed materials and life-size puppets to engage children and strengthen social, emotional, and academic skills.
