Face to Face Groups

RCT on 'Understanding your child's behaviour'. Face to face groups showed highly statistically significant results on the positive impact on closeness in the parent-child relationship and parental stress.

Whole School Training

Six months after the Solihull Approach Whole School training, teachers in 'School A' showed a statistically significant increase in satisfaction with their helping role, self-esteem, and teacher efficacy scores, as well as a decrease in feeling burnt out/stressed.

Online Antenatal Course

Participants in the online antenatal course showed a reduction in anxiety towards pregnancy and birth (p=<.0001), felt closer to the baby (p=<.0001), and showed increased intention to breastfeed (p=<.001) after completing the online course.

One to One Work

A significant decrease in distress and parental perception of child difficulty and a reduction in overall stress levels.

Foster Carers

After the group, there were significant increases in foster carers’ ratings of their understanding of their children’s difficulties; their understanding of why foster children behaved the way they did; their feeling of having the required skills to manage difficulties; alongside significant decreases in their ratings of foster children’s hyperactivity and attentional behaviour difficulties.

Peer Breastfeeding Supporter Training: several benefits were highlighted when incorporating the Solihull Approach into peer professionals’ practice, including increased confidence levels and improved team communication, as well as positive outcomes for their personal lives.
