'Outside the Box' - Understanding Children's Behaviour and Working Effectively with Parents

Format Workshop
Presenters Dr Bob Jacobs
Description The 'Outside the Box' Workshop delivered by Dr. Bob Jacobs will teach effective strategies for working with parents to reduce family conflict and parental stress as well as improve children's and parents' self-esteem.

The training will explain The Parenting Centre model, which has been developed by Dr. Bob Jacobs over the course of 30 years working with parents. The model is non-traditional and represents a very different, and highly effective, way for parents to redefine their roles, reassess what "successful parenting" is and look at their children in an entirely different way.

The training will explain the philosophy in depth and take participants through a detailed, step-by-step process for using The Parenting Centre model in working effectively with parents.

After the training you will have a new and unique understanding of children's behaviour, a step by step model for working effectively with parent and a developmental understanding of the enormous power of parents in shaping the lives of their children.
