Developing parenting programmes

Tackling challenging behaviour in children by engaging families in online training

Maudsley Charity funded this project to develop new online parenting programmes that help professionals working with disadvantaged families and parents to improve their access to training. 

The new technology, including videos and therapy that can be accessed at home, will aim to improve on parenting skills. This is the main contributor to challenging behaviour in children – the commonest mental health problem –  and which can lead to difficulties in education and employment later in life.
