Tuning in to Teens - Midland

Metro - Monday, July 29
12:30pm - 2:30pm

Do you want to get to know and understand your teen better?

Tuning in to Teens will show you how to develop your emotional connection between you and your children.

Specifically focusing on the developmental needs of teenagers, integrating a greater focus on acceptance/empathy, and helping parents and carers to manage their own responses when adolescents reject or push them away as the young person seeks greater autonomy.

The aim of this workshop is for adults to:

  • Understand and manage their teen's emotions while supporting healthy communication and emotional intelligence.
  • Become aware of emotions to support social skills and conflict.
  • Understand adolescent brain development and normalising behaviours.
  • Develop acceptance of all emotions, not necessarily behaviours.
  • Understand the importance of self-care and mindfulness.

Registration Essential.
