Next cohort starts 3rd June 2024.


This course gives you 365 days access to 5 hours of self-directed learning and 4 live sessions with Paul Dix and When The Adults Change Associates. You will also be given access to exclusive videos and resources that you will be able to use with parent groups.


Our 'How to coach parents in behaviour course' is designed to help you engage your communities in a way that will take relational practice beyond the school gates.


 Many of us know that children need to be wrapped in relational practice. We see many schools trying to re-establish the social contract that exists between themselves and their communities. 


We have seen this work and the outcomes are beautiful. Children are able to experience some consistencies across all areas of their lives. Learners become more resilient, more confident and more secure. We see improvements in their ability to regulate and increased engagement in teaching and learning. 


The process isn't a rapid one and changes aren't made overnight. Schools need to take the same 'drip drip drip' approach that has made our training successful. 


Our course will help you engage your families, influence the masses and support the few families that experience the greatest levels of distressed or diverse behaviours.


You will learn how to:

  • help your parent community understand your approach to behaviour
  • design and deliver training and workshops that will support your parents as they develop relational skills 
  • encourage families to participate in the relational changes
  • develop an emotionally safe environment for parent/carer interactions 
  • introduce your families to practical strategies that will help them create a calm and nurturing home environment 
  • unite parents and staff in their approach to supporting learners with additional needs


We recommend that this course is attended by colleagues who will become the Parent Coaches in your community. Your coaches don't need to be in your SLT or your pastoral team but should be confident relational practitioners and ideally will have their own experiences of caring for children and young people at home.
