We also offer family interventions, whether for couples or whole families. Our interventions are grounded in best clinical practices and have been proven effective in numerous research studies.
Triple P is a widely recognized and evidence-based parenting program that provides parents with a toolbox of strategies and techniques to manage common behavioural challenges in children. It offers different levels of intervention, ranging from brief consultations to more intensive individual or group sessions. Triple P equips parents with practical skills for promoting positive behaviours, managing misbehaviours, and improving communication and discipline practices.
The Incredible Years program developed by Webster Stratton focuses on strengthening parenting skills, promoting positive discipline, and fostering social-emotional competence in children. Through group sessions, individual coaching, and video modelling, parents learn effective strategies for building positive relationships, fostering empathy, promoting self-regulation, and managing challenging behaviours in children.
Video Interactive Guidance is a unique intervention that utilizes video recordings of parent-child interactions to promote reflective and sensitive parenting. With the guidance of a trained professional, parents review and analyse video footage, highlighting positive interactions and identifying areas for improvement. VIG enhances parental sensitivity, responsiveness, and attunement to their child's needs, leading to stronger parent-child relationships.
Non-Violent Resistance (NVR) at Springdale Psychology offers a transformative approach to parenting by promoting strengths, collaborative problem-solving, increased presence and engagement, activating support networks, and incremental resistance. By implementing NVR techniques, parents can restore relationships, empower themselves with effective communication and conflict resolution skills, strengthen emotional regulation for both themselves and their children, and resolve conflicts in a constructive and respectful manner, ultimately creating a safer and more harmonious family environment.
Our systemic family therapy approach involves working with the entire family system to address underlying dynamics and improve communication and interactions.
