About Good Enough Parenting (Secular)
“Good Enough Parenting” (GEP) is an evidence-informed programme which has transformed the lives of thousands of families in Singapore and abroad, by empowering parents to meet their children’s “Core Emotional Needs”, avoid “Exasperation Interactions”, cultivate “Nurturing Interactions”, build Values and Community as well as “Repair and Reconnect” with teenagers and adult children.
Good Enough Parenting is accredited under Singapore’s Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSF) FamilyMatters@School and @Community programme menu. The programme draws from principles of Schema Therapy, utilises Movie Therapy®, and offers a step-by-step guide for parents to learn how to raise emotionally healthy children. It is endorsed by Dr Jeffrey Young from the Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, and Founder of Schema Therapy.
In Singapore, the programme is offered by HOPE worldwide (Singapore) and Louis Counselling and Training Services.
There are now over 1,000 trained Facilitators from Asia, Europe, Nigeria, Kenya, South Africa, Central & South America, North America and Australia. “Good Enough Parenting” is a trademark in the United States and in the process of being trademarked in Singapore. The Good Enough Parenting book has just been published by a New York publisher, Morgan James Publishing. It is now available at retail throughout the United States and Canada. It is also available from Amazon.com.
“In a world of too much information, ‘Good Enough Parenting’ uses movies to teach parents how to MEET CORE EMOTIONAL NEEDS, and, at the same time, how to avoid passing down their own dysfunctional behaviors. Schema Therapy has been successful with adults, but I have always wanted to see someone do something on preventing schemas, or Lifetraps, in children, and here it is!”
