MANU is a parents educational program for all parents and addresses the mother as well as the father. The program’s concept builds on the theories of mentalization, attachment theory, children’s health and development and emotional regulation. MANU focuses on strengthening the skills of parents with positive parenting, also those who grew up in a more unstable home and who have not learned what a well-functioning family looks like. Therefore, parents in MANU are for example invited to reflect on how they would like to ensure that their own child will have a better upbringing and how they can do that. There are concrete pedagogical materials and the teachers has an adult education concept
they follow. The participants are reflecting over their own childhood and they discuss with their partner and the other parents. The background is that Greenland’s population survey from 2014 reported that 66% of the adult population grew up in a home characterized by alcohol or violence, or having been exposed to sexual assault.
