The Parentsplace Parenting Programme was developed by Dr.Tony Humphrey’s, Clinical Psychologist, Lecturer at the National College of Ireland, International Speaker , Author of many best selling books and our Mentor.
Parenting is the most valuable profession in today’s society and training and parenting skills are essential.
There now seems to be a dawning recognition by Governments, schools, work organisations, communities and parents that parental support and training is needed.
In response to that need we have set up Parentsplace and our parenting programme is very much an adventure based on the philosophy “All parenting starts with self”.
Throughout the eight weeks parents will look at parenting on a deeper level, they will reflect and hopefully be enabled to take action for themselves and their children. This will ultimately bring about lasting change in the parent and in the parent/child relationship.
