Online Strengthening Families programme
The online six week Strengthening Families parenting programme gives a taster of some of the issues and techniques covered in the full 13 week Strengthening Families, Strengthening Communities programme.
This video introduces the online course, and gives an idea what to expect when you take part.
The programme focuses, in particular, on the challenges faced by parents of under 5s. Weekly facilitated online discussions ensure that parents can cover experiential elements of the SFSC programme, and give opportunities to share the challenges and successes that they have undergone in parenting.
The online programme is not a replacement for the SFSC programme, but is instead meant as an introduction to the parenting techniques from the 13 week programme. It may be suitable for parents who have struggled to attend more traditional parenting programmes, due to work, study, or distance from programme venues. The online course might also suit parents who lack the confidence to join a face-to-face group.
The online course costs £100.
