Online parenting course
Parents and carers at our partner schools can sign onto our exclusive Parenting Smart online course. This course was developed in partnership with experts at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM).
Our Parenting Smart course supports parents and carers by:
- giving them tools to help them deal with everyday parenting challenges
- teaching them ways to strengthen their relationship with their child.
The techniques participants learn during this course are based on Place2Be's and SLAM's many years of experience supporting children, young people, and their families.
Parents and carers also get access to our Parenting Smart site. There, they can find practical parenting advice from child mental health experts on how they can support their child's wellbeing.
Parent-child training sessions
Personalised Individual Parenting Training (PIPT) is a parent and child training intervention developed by South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM). The parent-child training sessions are for primary-aged children, especially 3 to 8-year-olds, who are experiencing conduct, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Sessions aim to:
- promote positive child/parent relationships
- improve prosocial behaviour (behaviour that benefits others)
- reduce undesirable behaviour.
We offer parents and carers 6-10 training sessions with their child. During these sessions, a trained therapist will coach parents and carers on how to interact with their child more positively and parent more effectively.
Our parent and carer advice service, Parent Partnership, is a listening, consultation and guidance service offered to parents and carers who are identified as needing more targeted intervention following a mental health assessment.
The service involves a family practitioner meeting with parents and carers during and after their child’s Place2Be intervention to review their child's progress.
