INCREDIBLE YEARS BABY PARENT GROUP LEADER TRAINING
(Email your registration form to octf@octf.ohio.gov or fax it to 614-752-5229)
  

This 2-day training is designed for parent group leaders, regardless of whether they have completed the Basic Parent Group Leader Training for young children (although it can be beneficial to attend the 3-day Basic training first). This 8-9 session program focuses on teaching parents how to provide nurturing parenting to babies including offering physical, tactile, verbal and visual stimulation, coping with crying babies, safety proofing one's house, and understanding the developmental needs of babies. Parents will learn about managing issues such as crying babies, feeding and diapering problems, and leaders will take advantage of the babies' presence in the group to set up practices (e.g. baby massage). The curriculum uses Webster-Stratton's book Incredible Babies as the test for parents.
