The Incredible Years parent training intervention is an evidence based series of programmes focused on strengthening parenting competencies (monitoring, positive discipline, confidence) and fostering parents’ involvement in children’s school experiences in order to promote children’s academic, social and emotional competencies and reduce conduct problems. The Parent programmes are grouped according to age: BASIC Early Childhood (3-8 years) and BASIC School-Age (6-12 years). All of the programmes have an extensive evidence base which demonstrate excellent outcomes and impact for children and families.
