Dear Parent,

Public Health Wales and health board colleagues have been working hard to support parents during this Coronavirus pandemic. You now have the opportunity to access free online, bilingual courses that cover:

  1. Understanding Pregnancy, Labour, Birth and your Baby – online course for everyone around the baby (Mums, Dads, Grandparents, friends and relations).  Written by Registered Midwives and NHS Professionals
  2. Understanding your Baby – Online course for everyone around the baby, supporting you and the new arrival.  Written by Psychologists, Psychotherapists and Health Visitors
  3. Understanding your Child – Popular online course about being the best parent, grandparent or carer.  Award winning with trusted content
  4. Understanding your Teenagers Brain (short course) – explaining what happens to the brain in adolescence and how this explains some of the changes you may have noticed about their behaviour

These online courses provide users with information on the developmental and emotional milestones for understanding their child in a fun, safe and informative way and are based on the evidence-based Solihull approach that many health professionals use.

Following the successful launch across North Wales, these resources are now free and becoming available bilingually for everyone in Wales who cares for children aged 0-18 years. They can help to parents, grandparents and carers recognise emotions in themselves and their child and see how they can affect behaviour. The courses have already helped many parents and carers increase their confidence in their parenting skills and resulted in calmer and happier households for everyone.

To access the courses, click on this link www.inourplace.co.uk and put in the code NWSOL if you live in North Wales, and SWSOL if you live in South Wales to create your account and get your free access to the course of your choice.

The Solihull Approach courses are evidence based and accredited by the Department for Education (DfE) and aim to improve emotional health and wellbeing by supporting relationships (www.solihullapproachparenting.com).

We hope you find them helpful, particularly during these challenging times.
