|Key Outcomes||Facilitate The Garden Program|
|About||The Garden Programs form part of a suite of therapeutic programs designed for parents and their children by Together4Kids.|
The Garden Group Program was originally developed for parents and their infant or toddler (ages 0 – 4). It is now available for practitioner led, single parent and their infant or toddler through The Garden 8 week Dyad Program.
The Garden Programs provide an opportunity for parents to share positive experiences with their infant. These programs support parents to develop their relationship with their child through playful attachment and attunement activities. Based on a strong theoretical background, The Garden Programs use themes and activities to explore the natural environment through art, shared sensory activities, movement, play, relaxation and reflective opportunities.
In this two day training you will learn how to facilitate The Garden Group Program as well as how to apply The Garden Dyad Program. You will be provided with tips and advice on how to run these intentional therapeutic child-led programs successfully. The training includes time to practice the exercises and to familiarise yourself with the sessions.
Hard copies of The Garden Group Facilitator’s Manual 2nd Edition and The Garden Dyadic Practitioner’s Manual are included as part of this training. You can also view and download a copy for free here.
This training is suitable for frontline and specialist worker in homelessness and Family and Domestic Violence Services as well as therapeutic children’s workers, reunification and intensive family support practitioners.
