Four sessions of content, available in full online for you to work through in your own time. There is no time limit to access the material
Short introductory videos in each session
Explanatory information and case studies describing psychological theories and how to apply them to your own life
14 worksheets (editable PDFs) to support the application of information to your unique situation
Prompts for your own further exploration or discussion with your partner/co-parent
You will explore the messages you received as a child, think about why the parent-child relationship is so important, and learn how to parent in the way you want to, making conscious choices driven by your current values and not your past experiences.
You can do this course alone or with your partner/co-parent. You do not need to have had children to do this course, some people find it useful to reflect on what influences their ideas about parenting when planning a family.
By no means is this an exhaustive course on all of the different factors which influence our parenting (there are hundreds of thousands of books written on the topic!) Instead it is a course with bite sized chunks of some of the key ideas which come up in my clinical practice with parents. I hope you will find this is enough to get you thinking, start conversations, make some positive changes and maybe even resolve some old issues.
How should I approach it?
I suggest that you do not complete more than one session a week to allow time to process the information.
How long does it take?
Each session will take a minimum of 1 hour to complete, but the pilot group found that they wanted to take longer to complete each session. Some completed it within 6 weeks, most allowed themselves more time.
Is it self-paced?
The course is presented in bite size topics so you can dip in and out of it around family life.
How long do the worksheets take?
Worksheets will require more focused attention so best to put aside an evening a week to think about these.
I have a question before I buy?
