Tuning Into Teens Parenting Course

The tuning into teens program was developed by Melbourne University and is an evidence based parenting workshop.

My passion for working with teen and family challenges over the years has led to action. My hope is that this course will increase understanding and bring harmony within families. Receive real support to deal with the pain and difficulty of managing your teen’s emotions. 

This course aims to support parents by means of psychoeducation on developmental theory, age and stage appropriate markers for teen behaviour, the neuroscience behind difficult teen behaviours such as defiance, dismissiveness, isolation, rejection and criticism of parents. 

We explore varying parental responses such as anger, sadness, grief, rejection and frustration. We explore varying parenting styles and work on their own responses to teen behaviour. Helping acrimonious divorced parents, the blended family such as step-parents and step siblings understand how a teen’s behaviour. Helping parents, couples with teens expressing suicidal ideation, self-harm and isolation what this can often linked to and how to respond. This has been producing incredible results with family harmony, reduction in difficult teen presentations and families re-connecting in novel ways.

As a TAFE industry trainer for over 30 years, and a family and teen psychotherapist, I delivered 10 parenting programs to 100 parents over the past few years with proven results. Evaluations rated the course out of 5 resulting in a 4.8/5 satisfaction score. Feel free to read parent testimonies overleaf. Places are limited so please give me a call if you would like further information about the program or to book your place.
