The Parent Confidence Project: For Schools

About the event

Dear school principals, school counsellors, wellbeing and support staff,

We are all aware of the scale of the emotional and behavioural issues children are struggling with in schools, and the consequent immense pressure on limited resources at schools. You only have to look as far as this week in the Sydney Morning Herald for a headline "Anxiety, ADHD, ‘snowplough parents’: Behind our worsening school discipline crisis" to recognise the magnitude of the growing problem. 

Mainstream interventions to date have been child focused, either in schools or through external referrals. However, family systems research more and more is recognising the need for early-intervention with a family and/or parent focus as a crucial and neglected avenue of intervention. The National Children's Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2021 has identified the integration of parent intervention as a vital recommendation (Children’s Mental Health and Wellbeing Strategy - National Mental Health Commission).

The Parent Confidence Project is an essential resource for schools and families and aims to fill a significant service gap.

We are running a free online webinar on Wednesday 1 November from 5-6pm. We cordially invite anyone who might be interested to join to learn more about the Project and our goals to revolutionise the way we support school aged children.  Please see below for link and meeting details.

So why the Parent Confidence Project (PCP)?

The PCP shifts the focus from child to parent, aiming to reduce anxiety in the parent so they can connect to their child without worry and promote more independence and resilience in their child. Less anxious parents mean less pressure and less anxiety in the school system. Overall, this means children who are more able to engage in learning, and school systems that are less overwhelmed attending to behavioural issues, wellbeing and mental health concerns in students. Wouldn't that be nice!

The Program

The Parent Confidence Project (PCP) is an evidence-based 6-session program grounded in Bowen Family Systems Theory. It aims to guide and support a parent's commitment to being a less anxious family leader and empowering them to promote their child's healthy emotional development, self-discipline, self-regulation and maturity. This will mean more independence and resilience, and a greater ability for the child to manage the challenges of pre-adolescence, adolescence and then going into adulthood. These challenges include issues around major changes/transitions, school, identity, friendships, romantic relationships, family relationships and even others such as mental health symptoms and problem behaviours. 

A short 3-minute introduction to the Project by Dr Jenny Brown can be accessed here: https://youtu.be/NZ-akgeVw78?si=-VI6YM9w0A-VS6OO or please visit www.parenthopeproject.com.au.
