The Parents Under Pressure (PuP) program combines psychological principles relating to parenting, child behavior and parental emotion regulation within a group setting. The program is designed for families in which there are many difficult life circumstances that impact on family functioning. Such problems may include depression and anxiety, substance misuse, family conflict and severe financial stress. The program is highly individualized to suit each family and group. Parents are given their own Parent Workbook. For many parents, this becomes a personal journal of their treatment experience.
The overarching aim of the PuP program is to help parents facing adversity develop positive and secure relationships with their children. Within this strength-based approach, the family environment becomes more nurturing and less conflictual and child behavior problems can be managed in a calm non punitive manner.
The group meets weekly and children are invited to attend and take part in play, music and arts and craft activities. Morning tea is provided.
