Healthy Families is the latest programme in the Parents Plus suite of parenting programmes. Parents Plus is committed to delivering evidence-based programmes to parents. As such, we are conducting research on the Healthy Families programme with the School of Psychology at University College Dublin to ensure we are delivering the highest quality interventions to parents. You will be invited to take part in the research which would involve completing a few questionnaires online anonymously. Your participation is optional but it would be greatly appreciated. Once you have signed up for the course you will be contacted with further information regarding the research.

We welcome couples to attend together under a single booking. Please include the second parent’s name when completing the form.

Cost includes a parent book which will be posted out prior to course starting.

These courses are charged on a “pay what you can” basis. All payments received are reinvested into running these programmes in future. Please email to avail of a fully concessionary place
