Incredible Years is an evidence based group parenting class created at the University of Washington by Carolyn Webster Stratton. This premise of this program is developing a foundational relationship between parents and their children to decrease negative attention seeking behaviors and increase positive attention.

• Toddler: This is for parents with children ages 9 months-3 years. This class is not interactive and the child does not need to attend.
