The Incredible Years is an early intervention program that aims to improve family interaction and prevent early and persistent antisocial behavior in children aged three to 12.
Designed by Carolyn Webster-Stratton at the University of Washington, it includes components for children (often referred to as the Dinosaur program), for parents and for teachers. Each can be administered separately but they are believed to be more effective in combination. The approach uses video and group interaction to teach children, parents and teachers how to handle stressful situations. Programs are designed to be developmentally appropriate for each age group.
The Incredible Years is a Blueprints Model Program.
