HfCF Intervention Resources - Promoting positive parenting

(ex. VAT)

Intervention guide editor: Rosemarie Roberts

This intervention guide enables practitioners to support parents reinforce their children’s desired behaviour and shape challenging behaviour using a range of strategies, by helping parents to:

  • understand the causes of difficult behaviour by exploring with them factors which contribute to challenging behaviour
  • use praise and positive attention to increase behaviours which are most desired
  • use attention and ignoring to withdraw attention from mild, inappropriate behaviour, e.g. complaining, whining, reassurance seeking and to respond to desired behaviours
  • give effective instructions to avoid reinforcing a cycle of conflict
  • provide appropriate rewards using different systems to achieve a successful outcome
  • shape challenging behaviour using strategies such as consequences and sanctions, time out, externalising (e.g. ‘Defeating Temper’) and solution-focused approaches.
