Dr. Webster-Stratton was interviewed for an article published in the Irish Times highlighting her work to develop and research the Incredible Years programs for parents, teachers and children.
In the article: Meet the child behaviour guru who was 'ahead of the curve,' Dr. Webster-Stratton talks about her approach to treating child behavior problems, the innovation of video-based modeling, the importance of reaching parents, teachers, and children with behavior problems while children are young, and the value of a group-based approach to promote relationships:
“I don’t believe behaviour changes without relationships, without practice, without somebody coaching the practice.”
“The programme is more than about teaching parenting skills. It is about teaching how parents can support each other and learn from each other and build more of an extended support system within their communities.”
The article also features the individuals and agencies who have been instrumental in bringing the Incredible Years to Ireland and sustaining the programs over the years.
