“Helping to reduce parental stress, empowering parents and carers as the change agents in their own families.” Debi Maskell-Graham An innovative early help program for parents and children from 3 to 15 plus. Offered to groups, 1:1 or through a home visiting model. These sessions give a helping hand to the parent – child relationship, the practitioner is on hand throughout the programme for support. Parent and Child Play involve sharing skills with parents and carers through a ten-step program of interactive sessions. These skills are linked to the best outcomes in educational attainment, emotional wellbeing, mental health and social and family relationships. Over the ten sessions we look at:
- Play skills and creating a play/activity box tailored to the child
- Containment (managing time, environment, emotions, and helping children make helpful choices)
- Head, heart and hands reflective skills Contact Sarah at Creative-Me for more information.
