What is the Take 3 Programme?

The Take 3 Programme is a comprehensive evidence-based parenting programme for working with groups of parents of 10-18 year-olds, and especially with parents of at-risk or vulnerable young people.  It is also used extensively for one-to-one interventions with parents and can be used online.

Take 3 was originally created for use within the Youth Justice context and then developed over an eight-year period before publication in 2008, incorporating feedback from parents and facilitators so as to hone it down to ‘what works’. It was completely revised and updated in 2020.

More about the history and development of the Programme>>

It is used throughout the UK by Youth Offending and Early Intervention teams, social workers, health visitors and other parenting professionals.  The Programme has been independently positively evaluated and is validated on the Government’s Commissioning Toolkit.

Young people behave better when they feel understood, when they have parents who are able to set authoritative boundaries and when their parents value themselves.

The course is supported by a comprehensive pack containing written material and video clips, and each session is accompanied by detailed instructions.  These not only make it very easy for facilitators to use in a practical sense, but also provide readily accessible background theory, which greatly supports practitioners in their work by enabling a deepened understanding of family dynamics and human behaviour.
