What does Early Intervention look like?

At times Joel’s behaviour is very difficult. Cathy joined an Incredible Years group with Barnardo’s Child Bereavement Service to help her understand how to manage Joel’s behaviour. During the programme, Cathy was made redundant. In spite of these difficulties Cathy regained her confidence and uses the ‘attention’ and ‘ignoring’ principles she has learned to help her with Joel. She says that she has a tool kit now to help manage the many challenges that being a parent brings.  As a result of the programme Cathy now feels more in control and has secured a part time job which allows her to spend quality time with her children.
