Families In Mind

Understanding Parental Wellbeing

A FREE 4-week course supporting parents, grandparents, and carers to create a positive home environment that promotes family wellbeing.

‘Parental well-being reflects a parent's coping strategies, satisfaction with role as a caregiver, perceived support by others, and general emotional stability in contrast to feeling stressed, depressed, and/or lonely’ (King, King, Rosenbaum, & Goffin, 1999; Webster-Stratton, 1989).

Each week we will tackle a related topic and set SMART goals to build towards increased confidence and peace of mind when dealing with family issues.
