The Incredible Years® Conference in Denmark at Hindsgavl Castle on the 14th of May was a huge success, with almost 200 participants.  The purpose of the conference was to gather all Danish interested parties and make it a fresh start for the Incredible Years® Programs in Denmark.

The conference was opened by the director of the Center for ADHD Helle Hartung.

The first theme was Carolyn’s personal, fascinating story about the creation and development of the Incredible Years® programs.

Next, Marie Louise Rimestad presented her research on the mediating factors/active ingredients in the Basic parent program.

Maria Møller Cassøe and Line Møller Sletting gave a presentation about the important role of play in the Incredible Years® program. And they presented a play suitcase with items to support the transfer of learning and play activities from session to home.

A perfect ending of a wonderful day.

The framework for the fresh start for the Incredible Years® in Denmark could not have been more perfect.
