Curriculum Snapshot – Incredible Years

The Incredible Years (IY) is a 12-week, evidence based program (offered in English and Spanish) that teaches parents methods for reducing children’s aggression and behavior problems while increasing their social competence at home and at school.  IY has demonstrated an effect on protective and risk factors such as: an increase in positive and nurturing parenting techniques, effective discipline, parental praise, parent problem solving and a decrease in excessive and harsh discipline, parent stress and depression.

This year, Youth Contact will offer three (3) IY programs to support families and children across Washington County.  For current registration information and updates on future class offerings, please refer to this blog!  You can also email Lauren Christianson (Program Coordinator) at lchristianson@youthcontact.org.
