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.
On completion of the training, practitioners will be able to:
outline the key themes of adolescent development
describe the needs of both parents and adolescents during the teenage phase
relate these needs to appropriate parenting styles, skills and strategies
deliver the Talking Teens workshops to groups of parents and/ or in one-to-one sessions with parents
