Bringing Up Great Kids – Facilitator Training
What is this training about?
This practical one day workshop provides participants with the opportunity to learn how to successfully establish and run the Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program.
The ‘Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program is a group based program (that can be adapted for work with individual parents) that focuses on the experience of reflective and mindful parenting grounded in the relationships parents build and share with their children.
It is the prerequisite level of training for individual professionals to be able to have access to the Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program and become a registered facilitator. All registered facilitators will receive access to the Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program manual, relevant activities, and resources within the registration cost of the workshop.
These sessions are run by experienced parenting practitioners with hands on knowledge of implementing the ‘Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program’ with a range of parent groups in multiple locations across Australia.
This training is suitable for all professionals working with parents in either an individual or group context. While the program focuses on primary aged children, it can be adapted for infants and adolescents.

What difference will this make to your practice?
We believe a loving, safe parent is the best relationship a child can have. We also know that parenting is tough, and that non-judgmental support can make a huge difference in enabling access to assistance and other forms of help.
Our Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program presents parents with access to knowledge about development, connection with others and an opportunity to reflect on their communication with children. We’ve consistently found that when opportunities for mindful reflection are created these can lead to positive change; including more respectful interactions and increased positive self-identity in children, increased confidence in parenting for those parents – and a better relationship for all.
More than 3000 facilitators have been trained to use the Bringing Up Great Kids Parenting Program in a diverse range of organisations. You have the opportunity to join this community following your completion of this training.
