Shelby County Counseling Center will be starting a new session of the Incredible Years on September 1, 2015, for youth between the ages of 4 to 9 years. Parents will be required to attend with their child.
There will be a portion of the group where the family is together and a portion when parents are able to discuss concerns and work on helping their child and the children will have a group to gain skills in the following areas.
- Improved parent-child interactions, building positive relationships and attachment, improved parental functioning, less harsh and more nurturing parenting, and increased parental social support and problem solving
- Improved teacher-student relationships, proactive classroom management skills and strengthened teacher-parent partnerships
- Prevention, reduction and treatment of early onset conduct behaviors and emotional problems
- Promotion of child social competence, emotional regulation, positive attributions, academic readiness and problem solving
Groups operate from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at the Shelby County Counseling Center offices at 1101 North Vandemark Road in Sidney, Ohio. A meal is provided to the families during the group time. Additional services including working with a counselor and a family coach can be offered to families who are interested.
