Course Description

Join ‘The Garden Group Program’ as a facilitator and provide opportunities for parents to share positive experiences with their infant or toddler.

Over one and a half days, you will learn how to facilitate The Garden Group Program and apply The Garden Dyad Program. You will be provided with tips and advice on how to successfully run these intentional therapeutic child-led programs. Training includes time to practice exercises and familiarise yourself with the sessions.

Garden Group Programs, developed for parents and their infant or toddler (ages 0 – 4), use themes and activities to explore the natural environment through art, shared sensory activities, movement, play, relaxation and reflective opportunities. These programs   support parents to develop their relationship with their child through playful attachment and attunement activities. They form part of a suite of evidence-based therapeutic programs designed, by Together4Kids, for parents and their children.

This facilitator training is suitable for professionals working therapeutically with children and caregivers, including frontline and specialist workers in homelessness and family and domestic violence services, therapeutic children’s workers, and reunification and intensive family support practitioners.
