ENGAGING ADOLESCENTS

For parents and carers with teenagers and children over 10 years

This 3 week course provides parents and carers with easy-to-use techniques to:

  • Enlist adolescents to manage their own behaviour problems and emotional reactions
  • Build their relationship with their teenager, and
  • Deal with unacceptable behaviour while maintaining reasonable expectations of their adolescent

Parents will walk away with a new understanding of adolescents and a renewed sense of confidence about the role they can play in their teenagers’ lives, without conversations morphing into arguments.

CIRCLE OF SECURITY

An early intervention program for parents and children.

At times all parents feel lost or without a clue about what our child might need from us. Imagine what it might feel like if you were able to make sense of what your child was really asking from you. The Circle of Security® Parenting™ program is based on decades of research about how secure parent-child relationships can be supported and strengthened.

Circle of Security assists parents and caregivers to:
– Understand their child’s emotional world by learning to ‘read’ their needs
– Support their child’s ability to successfully manage emotions
– Enhance the development of their child’s self esteem
– Honour the innate wisdom and desire for their child to be secure.

Course Dates for 201

Term 4: Friday mornings 19th Oct to 7 Dec – 10am to 12.30
