Service Description

This workshop is based on the SmartChoice Parenting Proramme (SCPP) developed by the educational psychologist, Dr. Ken Resnick. While undertaking research for his Doctorate, Dr. Resnick observed that virtually all the evidence-based and well researched parenting programmes are based on Cognitive Behavioural Principles and Social Learning theory. In other words the aim of their program is to help parents deal with their child’s behavior. What makes the SCPP different from these parenting programmes is that it educates the parent regarding the importance of their role in guiding their child to adulthood and that the manner, or style in which they parent holds the key to the healthy development of their child - this includes learning and behaviour. Most professionals are taught that childhood disorders have nothing to do with the quality of parenting that the child receives. In fact, from Dr. Resnick’s experience with the SCPP, parenting has everything to do with the manifestation of all childhood disorders. This is what makes the SCPP so different and effective. Another huge advantage is that it consists of only one general session and a follow-up session with the family when teenagers are involved. Included in the workshop is Dr Resnick's book Parenting Decoded.
