Code: BH/19/0935 Parents as Partners - Facilitator Training (EVENT FULL)

PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in applying to recieve this training please request a place, then complete the attached application form and send it to Stephen.Woodward@brighton-hove.gov.uk 

The deadline for applications is 31 July 2019.


Parents as Partners (PasP)  is a group intervention for couples and co-parents of young children which originated in the US, developed by Professors Phil and Carolyn Cowan and has a sound evidence-base, developed over 40 years in the US and UK, showing significant decrease in couple conflict and child difficulties, and improvements in adult mental wellbeing, parenting confidence and relationship satisfaction. The programme is delivered over 16 weekly two-hour sessions and is manualised, but requires considerable skill and flexibility of its facilitators. As an intervention, it lies somewhere between psycho-educational parenting programmes and group therapy. Distinguishing it from most other programmes for parents, it is a requirement of the work that both parents attend together, and Group Leaders work in male/female pairs.

This 4-day training course forms the first part of the process of becoming an accredited Parents as Partners Group Leader. In the second part, the student co-leads a 16-week programme under Tavistock Relationships supervision (including some video feedback), which – if completed successfully – will lead to full accreditation.

The training requires active involvement from participants and includes several opportunities to practice group facilitation, with support and feedback from the Tavistock relationships team.

You will be provided with:
Fortnightly clinical supervision provided by experienced facilitators from Tavistock Relationships
An accreditation (upon completion of your first co-facilitated group)
Optional training to deliver the course content during individual work with couples
