Previous studies have shown effects in the parenting guiding program ICDP. Aim and research question: The purpose of this study adresses the minority parent´s experiences with the ICDP programme. The research question is the following: ”Which experiences do minority parents have with the parenting guiding programme ICDP and to which extent does the course have importance for the relationship between the parents and their children?” Method: Design, selection and analysis: This study has a qualitative design and an interpretive phenomenological approach. There have been conducted in-depth-interviews with five minority parets who all have completed the program. The analysis is conducted according to Smiths Interpretive Phenomenological Analysis (IPA).
