Incredible Years Child Programme

The Incredible Years® Child Dinosaur programmes target children aged 3-8 years of age; it can be delivered either as a treatment programme for children who are already exhibiting behaviour problems, or as a prevention programme in classroom settings. Children are taught cognitive, emotional self-regulation and behavioural strategies and emotional literacy for managing angry, negative, and depressive self‐talk and increasing prosocial behaviour, self‐esteem, and confidence. In follow-up studies, adolescents showed increased social and emotional competence with peers in classroom, increased problem-solving skills, reductions in behaviour problems and increased academic readiness and cooperation with teachers.
