Developing parenting programmes

Tackling challenging behaviour in children by engaging hard-to-reach families in online training

This Maudsley Charity funded this project to develop new online parenting programmes and train, supporting professionals to increase engagement in effective parenting work among disadvantaged, hard-to-reach families.  

The new technology, including videos and therapy that can be accessed at home, will tackle inconsistent, harsh parenting. This is the main contributor to challenging behaviour in children, the commonest mental health problem, which often leads to drug misuse, underachievement, violence and criminality.
