The International Network for Children and Families (INCAF) is an organization designed to offer support to strengthen families and communities by offering courses, trainings, workshops, and resource materials to parents, teachers, and organizations.INCAF has now certified over 1,000 parenting educators and the Redirecting Children's Behavior course is currently taught in fourteen countries.
INCAF was formed by Kathryn Kvols over thirty years ago. Kathryn is the author of the book and parenting course Redirecting Children's Behavior. Early in her career, Kathryn was working as a family counselor. She started teaching methods that helped parents become calmer and more confident and empowered them to raise their children to be responsible and cooperative. Parents applauded the results they saw in their families and began to push Kathryn to write a book based on the principles, which she taught in her classes.
Out of parents' enthusiasm and Kathryn's own belief that parenting is the most important job we will ever have, she wrote Redirecting Children's Behavior, and created accompanying courses. Both have continued to grow and expand, with the book being revised and republished three times since 1979. The INCAF Parenting instructors are carefully selected and go through a rigorous 40 hours training. INCAF is one of the only organizations that require their instructors to obtain and maintain their certification through continuing education.
