Toddler Behaviour Problems
The UTS: Family Child Behaviour Clinic is continuing to take referrals into Holding Hands, a research treatment program for parents of toddlers who are showing social, emotional or behavioural difficulties, or where parenting is challenging.
This free program invites parents of toddlers aged 12-60 months to attend the UTS: Family Child Behaviour Clinic for between 6 and 8 ninety-minute sessions. During the weekly sessions parents become familiar with parenting skills that are strongly supported by research evidence and also have the opportunity to practice those skills in real time.
While COVID-19 continues to be a concern, the Holding Hands program will be undertaken online. All relevant UTS, NSW Health, NSW State and Australian Federal laws and recommendations will be adhered to.
Parents’ situations are assessed before referral into the program, and parents are asked to complete assessment prior to, following and three months after the programs completion. The program has UTS Human Ethics Research approval (HREC NO. ETH20-4705) and everyone working on the treatment team holds a current NSW Working with Children Check.
