Building a world first school-based clinic to empower parents, teachers and children

Ingleburn Public School, NSW

Help six schools in the Campbelltown and Liverpool community (Ingleburn Public School, Macquarie Fields PS, Sackville Street PS, Warwick Farm PS, Robert Townson PS and Campbelltown Community Preschool) that have come together with the goal to establish the world's first school-based clinic to provide Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) – one of the most effective programs for managing emotional and behavioural problems in young children.

Your support towards this project will be used to build the treatment room within Ingleburn PS ready for opening Term 1 2019. This will allow parents, children, and teachers from across this community to access free, tailored PCIT intervention.

This programme seeks to strengthen parentschool and teacher partnerships to enable children to learn appropriate behaviours that improve their social and academic outcomes. 

Parents will be empowered through learning play-therapy skills to improve the quality of the parent-child relationship, and learning to use effective commands and discipline strategies to better manage child behaviour. Parents will receive real-time coaching from trained PCIT therapists using a bug-in-ear device from behind a one-way mirror as they interact with their child. This means that parents get practice and feedback on their new parenting skills before taking the skills home and doing it by themselves.

Teachers will be supported by in-class PCIT support services to develop skills to manage problematic behaviours within the classroom, thereby enriching the learning experience for all. PCIT support staff will collaborate with teachers to design individualised and classroom-wide behaviour management plans.

Why support this project? 

To allow us to build the required treatment room, including the special one-way mirror so we can launch our Parent-Child Interaction Therapy program from Term 1 2019 across our Campbelltown and Liverpool community.

How PCIT can make a difference?

Untreated children with behaviour difficulties may continue to be difficult and antisocial into their adult years. These problems can negatively impact their relationships, academic and career prospects, and quality of life.

Some children with childhood oppositional defiant disorder (ODD) will develop the more serious Conduct Disorder, characterised by aggressive, criminal, and violent behaviours. Many children with disruptive behaviour problems also experience other mental health problems, including anxiety and mood disorders and substance-use disorders.

Many classroom teachers report they are not adequately trained to manage students with significant behavioural problems.

Help us to make our community a better place by:

  • Improving children’s behavioural, social, and academic outcomes 
  • Reducing parental stress, enhancing parents’ skills, and improving overall family function
  • Preventing future challenging behavioural problems, including early violent and aggressive behaviour that can result in potential bullying or crime
  • Preventing future mental health problems beyond antisocial behaviour, including anxiety disorders, depression, and substance-use disorders
  • Helping create a positive teaching and learning environment
  • Fostering a collaborative and enriching relationship between teaching staff, wider school staff, and parents, with the goal of improving child outcomes across the school body

We strongly believe that we, as a society, can do a better job at preventing violence and crime by supporting at-risk children and families through early intervention and empowering them to live happy and confident lives. 

We cannot do this alone, we need your support.
