A comprehensive one-day training course that provides skills to teach parents and carers of teenagers’ skills to resolve their behaviour problems.
This workshop provides easy-to-use techniques to teach to parents and carers that they can use to enlist adolescents to manage their own behaviour and emotional reactions. They will learn to build a relationship with their teenager and strategies to deal with unacceptable behaviour.
Parents will walk away with a renewed sense of confidence about the role they can play in their teenagers’ lives, without conversations morphing into arguments.
The professional training includes role play, group discussion, worksheets and videos. This one-day course equips professionals with the knowledge to teach parents the program over three sessions and/or how to teach the tenets of the program in a few one-to-one clinical sessions
Each participant receives professional practitioner training resources including a manual, slideshow and session-by-session guidelines to facilitate parent meetings.
Participants will learn:
- The common ground shared by parents
- What are reasonable expectations to hold about adolescents?
- New understandings of adolescence: social landscapes, brain snaps and body makeovers
- A three-option model and flowchart for decision-making to manage a teenager’s problem behaviour
Lunch and refreshments are provided.
Active PD hours apply.
