PuP Training: Process and Costs

The PuP training process for our ONLINE and HYBRID training is as follows:

Initial training in the PuP model

Day 1 & Day 2 : Seminar across 2 days (FACE-TO-FACE OR ONLINE)

This initial 2 day training event provides an overview of the PuP model, focuses on how to provide support to families recognising both areas of difficulty and strength. The theoretical foundations of the PuP program are described using the Integrated Theoretical Framework that draws from attachment theory, behavioural parenting theory and adult psychopathology. The impact of the quality of the caregiving and the child’s home environment is contextualised with consideration of how parental values and expectations and parental emotional wellbeing (ie parent’s state of mind) impact on the capacity to provide a nurturing and safe environment for children.

HYBRID MODEL: at least two seminars are delivered face to face.

Month 1 & 2: Seminars 1 & 2 (2 - 3 hours per seminar)

These seminars provide an opportunity to consider how to use the initial tools “Starting your PuP Journey” to develop an individually tailored support plan for families. The importance of collaboratively setting clear goals for change is addressed.  

Month 4: Seminar 3 (5 hours)

This seminar provides an opportunity to consider in more detail the way that the PuP program can be used in practice to support development of parent and child emotion regulation and enhancing the quality of the caregiving relationship. The requirements around the completion of the case study are discussed.

Month 6: Seminar 4 (2 hours)

This brief catch up is to support the completion of the accreditation requirements including case study support.

Month 8: Seminar 5 (5 hours)

This day provides an opportunity to focus on process issues that arise in the provision of the PuP program. This includes detailed case review of trainees’ current cases in addition to issues around engagement, retention and assessing capacity to change.

Month 12: Development Day.

There is a suite of topics that agencies can select that reflect their own learning needs. These can be discussed with the trainer and tailored to the needs of the agency. Topics include:

  • Understanding FASD: a PuP perspective
  • Assessing substance misuse in parents
  • Development of self-regulation in early childhood.
  • The integration of trauma-informed practice into the PuP model.
