From Strength to Strength: A Manual for Professionals Who Facilitate Diverse Parent Groups

From Strength to Strength: A Manual for Professionals Who Facilitate Diverse Parent Groups is a practical resource for facilitators who are (or who want to be) working with a wide and varied range of parents in group work situations. Facilitators can mix and match sessions from the core and specialist modules according to the needs of a particular group. Four core modules provide developmentally appropriate sessions for use with parents who have children in different age groups.

Fourteen specialist modules focus on parents with specific or specialised needs. Facilitators are provided with a background briefing for parents in short-term or ongoing crisis:
- Parenting after violence
- Parents in prison
- Parents involved with statutory child welfare service
- Parents with intellectual disability
- Parents with psychiatric illness
- Parents with substance-abuse issue
Additional topics include bullying, homework, loss and grief, siblings and transition stages.

Filled with practical wisdom, From Strength to Strength is a user-friendly, relevant, informed and optimistic parenting manual essential for anyone working with today's parents in a group situation.
