Our team is here to help you with a range of programs as well as hands-on tips and guidance for the journey. 

Check out what we have planned for 2019. 

​Information sessions

Parenting programs

Triple P (Positive Parenting Program)

The Triple P program has been shown to reduce problem behaviour in children aged 2 to 12 years, as well as assisting with any emotional problems they might be facing.

The evidence also shows the training helps parents feel more confident, less stressed, less angry, and less depressed. 

We run regular Triple P seminars free of charge, several times a year.

Our next course starts on 2nd May. 

For more information on upcoming sessions, call Bronwynn on 02 8338 8506 or email familysupport@secc.sydney

Dads and Bubs Bonding Course

We also periodically run a three-week group workshop for new dads who are learning to juggle the parenting role.

Fathers of babies up to 12 months of age now have the opportunity to chat about themselves and their babies and learn some practical information about child development in a relaxed environment. 

Mums are also welcome in the third week with the baby massage therapist. 

The Dads and Bubs Bonding Course is open to fathers, grandfathers and male carers, and their babies, and the next one will run from 19th February..
