Who’s in Charge? is a 9 week programme combining educational and therapeutic sessions for parents of children, who are verbally or physically abusive and beyond parental control. The programme works with parents to understand the complex nature of abuse.
The aim of the group is to reduce parental stress and guilt by providing a supportive environment and seeks to offer an opportunity for parents to change their own attitudes and behaviours. The group works towards empowering parents to develop ideas on improving family relationships and building strategies to promote the reduction of children’s violent and abusive behaviours.
This is achieved by the use of 8 structured sessions, which incorporate group exercises, discussion and handouts. A follow-up session is held after 2 months, where family situations are reviewed and progressed assessed.
