Supporting Children – Tautoko Tamariki

This is a new programme offered by the Coromandel Independent Living Trust and offers support to individual families who, for a variety of reasons, are unable to attend an Incredible Years Programme.

The basic content of the programme is closely aligned to The Incredible Years philosophy.

The ten week programme aims to support parents to connect with their children, and to manage challenging behaviour positively.

Families take part in weekly coaching sessions which usually take place in their own home (although these sessions may take place in another agreed place). Sessions focus on issues and challenges specific to each family, and encourage families to be active in setting their own goals and identifying their own solutions. In addition to the weekly sessions, participants are telephoned between sessions to celebrate successes and talk through any challenges.

The total time commitment for each family is approximately 2 hours per week over the ten week period, and about 40 minutes for an initial meeting.
