Incredible Years Basic Parent Group Leader Training!

Last week we were happy to have a wonderful group of folks from all over the states come to Seattle for Parent Group Leader training! Carolyn Webster-Stratton trained the participants about how to implement the Incredible Years Parent Programs (for working with parents of children ages 2-8). During the 3 days of training, participants were provided with hands on experience in the form of role plays and practices. They collaborated together to develop principles for working with parents, recruitment strategies, and more!

The Incredible Years holds regular group leader trainings in Seattle, WA for people interested in implementing our programs. See our “Workshop Schedule” for more information!

2013 Group Leader & Certified Leader Data

Hello!

We wanted to share with you some interesting data that we have recently compiled. Each year we analyze the number of group leaders in every country implementing Incredible Years®, as well as information on Certified Group Leaders, Peer Coaches, Mentors and Trainers.

For those of you who don’t know about our Certification Process, it is the process facilitators may apply for in order to become accredited in Incredible Years® programs. It is an extensive process that focuses on peer review and feedback as a means to assist group leaders with becoming more able to effectively use the Incredible Years® programs with fidelity. We strongly encourage facilitators to go through Certification because it allows them to become more comfortable using the programs and it provides such a strong focus on supporting them and celebrating their successes.

Take a look through the pie charts below to see statistics about where in the world people are being trained and becoming certified! (Click on the images to enlarge them.)
