Parents Empowered Group
The Parents Empowered Group, or PEG for short, is offered to parents of children who have been seen in tier 2, tier 3 or the Learning Disability team, if they display very challenging behaviour.
The group runs for 8 weeks and teaches parents strategies to manage children's challenging behaviours, as well as helping them to build positive relationships with their children.
We find that groups are really useful not only to provide these skills to several parents at once, but also to share experiences between parents and helps them to realise that they are not the only ones!
This intervention does not to aim to "fix" children, but it can help parents gain a better understanding of difficulties such as ADHD.
