We guide and support professionals in education, psychology, social work and family support groups, so they can effect behaviour change within their own organisations, and for their clients. Specialised training courses and resources provided by Parentshop equip participants with the skills and tools they need to implement strategies to deal with difficult and challenging behaviour, anxiety and hold tough conversations with children, adolescents and adults. The latest research in behavioural sciences underpin our training solutions, yet they are practical and easy-to-implement – whether at home or in a workplace environment. Together we can make a real difference to the lives of everyone in our communities. We hope to see you at a Parentshop course soon.
