From worry about your child, to confidence in your parenting

The overall theme of the Confident Parent Course is when parents’ make a project out of themselves rather than anxiously focussing on their child, this provides developmental ‘breathing space’ for the child, reducing worry and increasing parent confidence.

The 4-part course explores the following questions:

You can start with the theory course – Family Systems Understanding of symptom development in children. From there, you can watch the streaming resources, the Confident Parent Course (either the full video version, or highlights), or Cultivating Confident Parenting to see what is available for parents.

You are then ready to complete the training course in how to present the Confident Parent Course.

After this you are able to start delivering the course at your school.

If you would like some extra mentoring or coaching to implement the Schools Package, this is available at $280 per hour plus GST (we recommend 1.5 or 2 hours). This will help you to clarify the ideas in the course to best facilitate parent self discovery. Contact our office to book.

If you would like some extra mentoring or coaching to implement the Confident Parent Course, this is available for 1 hour, 1.5 or 2 hours, costed at $280 per hour plus GST with Jenny, Vicki or another trainer. Contact our office to book.

2 initial sessions are recommended to look at the big picture of the school package strategy. 1 hour sessions can be useful for single-event preparation or discussing a single dilemma.

The initial sessions will cover:

  • clarifying the training (family systems theory and children’s mental health and wellbeing) and the streaming resources
  • what is unique about the messaging – not telling parents how to do their job, but a framework for parent self-discovery so they can parent more calmly and confidently
  • Exploring the context of the school and its unique parent communities
  • Brainstorming ideas for engaging parents

Session 1: Work through your school’s unique context in engaging parents, teasing out remaining questions.

Session 2: After you have completed the theory training course and after the first delivery of the group – Q & A about course content – brainstorm ways to respond to parent questions and reactions.

In the Confident Parent Course, each session of the faith-based version concludes with a short reflection of a relevant bible verse, and the workbook has reflection questions linked to the verse.

Each person/facilitator will need to purchase their own schools package, sharing of logins in not allowed. This allows facilitators to run the courses in one organisation/school.

If you are a trained facilitator delivering the Confident Parent Course in another organisation, each organisation will need to purchase their own highlights package, available here. 

The schools package is $969 including GST, sign up here.

Future years will not include the training component, and will still include the streaming access to all the courses for your school plus online support, for $649 available here for those who have already completed the theory and facilitator training.

If you have completed your first year using the schools package, and have completed your theory training and training in Confident Parent Course group facilitation, you can now purchase 12 months access to our Schools Package – resources without training.

This provides access to all our courses, including highlights to facilitate the Confident Parent Course live, plus ongoing support with a community hub, resource library and live webinars.
