When asked if they thought Australians needed parenting classes, more than 63% of Lateline viewers said "yes". But how could they be introduced and would parents take part?
Research shows that less than a quarter of parents are getting the evidence-based help they need and want. This is why University of Sydney's Child Behaviour Research Clinic have created ParentWorks.
Experts have called for parents to be given easy access to practical skills classes and support, saying Australians get no training for our toughest job.
2SER Radio chats with Mark Dadds about effective parenting and its links with positive mental health.
An Australian-first online parenting program, ParentWorks has been built specifically with busy dads in mind, since they are less likely than mums to ask for support.
In an Australian first, a father-friendly online parenting program, funded by the Movember Foundation, has been launched offering strategies for kids with behavioural problems.
University of Sydney professor Mark Dadds on Monday launched ParentWorks, backed by basketballer Andrew Gaze and comedian Tim 'Rosso' Ross.
ParentWorks incorporates what dads want to increase success.
The ParentWorks program was born after research found mums were far more likely to seek help dealing with troublesome children, and dads were unrepresented.
Most fathers leave it to mothers to attend their child's therapy for behavioural issues, saying they can't get out of work.
Do you know a Dad who has done a parenting program? If you do they're apparently very rare creatures, but a new research program through the University of NSW is trying to develop a parenting program that will attract Dads.
With the participation rates of fathers in parenting programs non-existent in some parts of Australia, UNSW researchers are leading a $2.6 million effort to engage and support fathers to help manage aggressive behaviours in their sons.
A hybrid of observational documentary, factual intervention and social experiment. Working together for the first time, a team of experts, led by dynamic Clinical Psychologist Professor Mark Dadds, put 4 families with 5 children suspected of having ADHD, through a cutting edge evidence based 9-week intervention program.
Fathers will be critical to the successful treatment of their sons’ aggressive and antisocial conduct in a UNSW-led project, which has today been awarded a $2.6 million grant from the Movember Foundation.
