This research evaluates a parenting program, Tuning in to Kids (TIK), an intervention which aims to prevent the onset of social, emotional, and behavioural difficulties in at-risk young children. TIK aims to improve parents’ emotional responsiveness and emotion regulation in order to assist their child to begin to understand and regulate their emotional reactions and to reduce stress for parent and child. The children`s teachers will receive a shortened version of TIK in the same timeframe.
