I am excited to release a new program to my services, Tuning in to Teens™.
This is another quality researched based program developed by Melbourne University’s Mindful Centre. Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley with Christiane Kehoe and Elizabeth Pizarro tailored this program from the original Kids version to suit parents of children aged 10-18 years!
It aims to help you and your adolescent manage the many emotional challenges of this stage of life. Tuning in to TeensTM is a six-week parenting program run one day/evening a week for two hours. The program will teach you how to manage your own and your adolescent’s emotions in ways that help you to remain close and keep communicating. By learning these skills, you are less likely to have as much conflict within your family and your teen is more likely to talk to you about the challenging issues they face. These are factors that have been found to reduce the risk of mental health and substance abuse problems.
