An Insight into Parenting

Manchester is set to host a special conference at the end of the month to bring together experts to look into Parenting. The ‘Parenting – What Works!’ conference will take place on Monday 25th September and will have expert speakers who will be addressing a range of subjects including: The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines for parenting Incredible Years Parent Programme Family Partnership Model: Promoting Children’s Mental Health Incredible Years Teaching Programme Mellow Parenting: An intensive parenting programme for families with relationship problems …. and much more. The event will be attended by the Rt Hon Beverley Hughes MP, Minister of State for Children, Young People and Families who will address the conference. Manchester’s Early Intervention Services are delivered through multi-agency partnerships between Manchester City Council and the NHS Trust. Caroline White, Head of Early Intervention Services, who is organising the conference says: “It’s fantastic that Manchester is hosting an International Conference on ‘Parenting’ and really gives us the opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the city’s achievements in developing effective evidence based parenting interventions which truly benefit young children and their families. “We are especially pleased to have Professor Carolyn Webster-Stratton, University of Washington, speaking at the conference as so many parents living in Manchester have attended Parent Survival Courses which deliver her well researched and effective Incredible Years programme. This model has been highlighted in recent government papers as being an example of good practice and we are delighted that the Rt Hon Beverley Hughes, MP Minister of State for Children, Young People and Families will also be in attendance supporting the event.” The conference will be attended by 300 delegates with representatives from the UK, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Germany and the USA.
