Parenting

Parents' Week aims to make Britain a more family-friendly place by celebrating the importance of bringing up children. But nobody is saying parenting is an easy job. The independent charity the National Family and Parenting Institute, who have designated this Parents' Week, have launched a booklet to help parents who may be worried about their children's behaviour entitled 'Over the top Behaviour in the Under 10s.' It is aimed at helping parents with tips and advice on how to spot the difference between normal childhood misbehaviour and when there are more serious problems.

Interviews with Mary McLeod, Chief Executive, National Family and Parenting Institute and Dr Miranda Wolpert, Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Lead Clinician for Child Psychology in Bedfordshire and Luton Community NHS Trust.

'Over the top Behaviour in the Under 10s' is available by ringing the National Family and Parenting Institute on 020 7424 3460 or it can be downloaded from e-parents

For further information on Parents' Week, 21st-27th October, or parenting issues visit NFPI

Children's Fears

Fear is a natural and evolutionarily essential part of childhood - without it, few of us would make it into adulthood. But how much fear is healthy - when does it become a problem? Claudia Hammond reports on a study aimed at understanding how children develop fears.

Contributor: Dr Andy Field, University of Sussex

Kelly's Grid Response

Dr Raj Persaud and the Producer of All in the Mind, Marya Burgess, go through some of the e-mails from listeners who filled in Kelly's Repertory Grid, the personality test where you decide what's going to be tested.

For details - and to try the grid yourself - see the 9 October page, where you can also listen again to the programme.

Professor Til Wykes

Til Wykes, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Rehabilitation at the Institute of Psychiatry, has been helping people with schizophrenia improve their cognitive skills - their memory, attention, organisational abilities - with something called Cognitive Remediation Therapy or CRT. She's recently published a further paper on that study, revealing that functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging - fMRI scans - of the brains of the schizophrenic subjects showed marked changes in brain activity following CRT.
