Tuning into Kids - New Training

Public Health are facilitating a two-day Tuning into Kids accredited training for staff in Somerset. 


Dates: 30th & 31st July 2018


The training cost is £400 (plus an additional £135 for the course manual)


Tuning in to Kids is an evidence-based parenting programme that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. In particular the programme teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting, supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions. The programme has been shown to improve parenting, parent-child relationships and children’s emotional competence and behaviour. The program has been particularly effective with children with emotional and behavioural difficulties.


Our current programme of Tuning into Kids courses for parents and carers are having a positive impact on families throughout Somerset.
