DSC_1437GroupWhile clinicians and lay leaders attempt to help families resolve their diverse issues, many wonder: is there a preventive approach to equipping parents so that unhealthy patterns in families can be averted, families can be more connected, and children can grow up emotionally healthier and resilient?

Good Enough Parenting (GEP) is the solution to this pressing need. GEP is an in-depth, research-based, evidence-informed parenting programme which zooms in on the emotional and psychological impact of adequately (and inadequately) meeting Core Emotional Needs. It is based on Schema Therapy and endorsed by Dr Jeffrey Young, Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, and Founder of Schema Therapy, Good Enough Parenting is unique as it incorporates Movie Therapy®, where appropriate movie clips are shown to highlight key teaching points. GEP is accredited under the Ministry of Social and Family Development’s FamilyMatters! programme menu.
