The Incredible Years® Series is a set of interlocking, comprehensive, and developmentally based programs targeting parents, teachers and children. The training programs that compose The Incredible Years® Series are guided by developmental theory on the role of multiple interacting risk and protective factors in the development of conduct problems.
