Running online Bringing Up Great Kids Groups for Parents

Thank you for your interest in understanding more about running your BUGK group online.

We no longer facilitate training, but want to share what we have learnt to enhance your own BUGK online group experience

We are still working on this site but in the near future we will be able to provide answers to your Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and from BUGK facilitators across Australia their creative ways of adapting the BUGK materials to the online space.

In the meantime, if you would like immediate support, please contact parenting@childhood.org.au and we can provide support to get your online BUGK group up and going.

What will you learn?

By participating in this workshop, you will:

  • Learn to adapt the BUGK materials to an online format with parents in a group
  • Learn practical ways to start and maintain engagement of parents in a group
  • Understand how to adapt and implement the BUGK activities so they work and resonate with
    parents in the online space
  • Be able to adapt the program to meet the specific needs of the parents you work with
  • Consider the ethical and privacy issues associated with running a group online

What difference will this make to your practice?

BUGK is a mindful, respectful and reflective program that provides facilitators with a different perspective on parents and parenting.

This workshop offers facilitators the skills and confidence to be able to use the resources and approach that underpins BUGK with parents in ways that are relevant to the current community context shaped by the COVID-19 emergency.
