Frequently Asked Questions

The aim of this course is to facilitate parents realising ways they can take worry and intensity out of their parenting and replace it with clearer principles for managing in the many stressors of child-rearing. It is different to many courses in that it doesn’t tell parents what to do in various situations. Parents are not given steps to follow in managing their children but rather things to observe about themselves. Many parents understandably hope to get formulas for managing their children, but our view is that helping parents discover simple and manageable adjustments to the ways they respond to their children will have more sustainable value. 
Parents learn to measure their progress not based on how their child’s moods or behaviours are today but on how they are parenting, guided more by their principles and job description. 

The training course is on our online learning platform, where the streaming resources are also located. The facilitator training video is of a live training event recorded on zoom, while the streaming resources are filmed to professional quality. You can work through the course at a pace to suit you, in your own time. A final assignment is required to check understanding for  both the theory course and facilitator training.

The training takes about 15.5 hours. It involves:

  • Theory training – 3 hours.
    • Research and the Development of the Parent Hope Project (free and optional)
    • Theory course: Family Systems and Symptoms in Children (short assignment)
  • watching the full Confident Parent Course – 5 hours
  • watching the Confident Parent Course Group Facilitator Highlights (for use in delivering the course) – 2.5 hours

We encourage you to take advantage of the subscription and review the material again before undertaking the Group Facilitator Training. New points may stand out to you now you have more experience with the Parent Hope Project.
