Talking Teens


This 1 or 2-day training course is for practitioners who wish to offer the 4-week Talking Teens programme to parents of teenagers.


Based on the most recent research on adolescence, and consistent with the principles of The Nurturing Programme, the groups provide a positive view of teenage development and focus on relationships within the family, communication, negotiating, decision-making and strategies to reduce conflict.


Included in the training is the programme manual and a copy of the parents’ booklet - Talking Teens: Your Guide to Understanding Teenagers.
