    • Parenting courses range from £60.00 for 6 x 2 hourly workshops. This course was commented on by H M Inspectors at an Aberdeenshire secondary school as an example of 'best practice'. The link between the Parenting Course to a Young Persons Course was thought to be particularly effective. The young person can go through a similar series of workshops with the expectancy that the family can discuss each others experiences and learn from each other, particularly as their communication skills build.
  • Referral Policy: Yes
    • Any agency can refer parents to us. Often, referrals come from schools where children are showing behavioural problems or from community centres where the community workers experience behavioural problems.
