Natural Steps to Strong Resilient Families

This fun and interactive course has been designed to meet the needs of parents and carers facing the everyday challenge of parenting.  It also helps recognise when we are not feeling safe and provides skills and tools to enable us to take action and get help when we need it.

This practical and interactive course runs as six, two-hour sessions, focusing on different areas of emotional resilience, including dealing with conflict.  There are opportunities to try new techniques, tools and approaches with the support of our friendly and expert parent coaches. We advise attending all workshops to achieve maximum benefit.

  

Between sessions, you are encouraged to complete development techniques to consolidate learning.
