Raising Teens With Confidence Course

Raising Teens with Confidence Course

This particular Raising Teens with Confidence Course is specifically targeted to parents and carers who care for a pre-teen or teenager with emotional wellbeing or mental health issues.

Friday 9th February- 23rd March 2018 (excluding school holiday), Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre, 5 Moredunvale Place, 9.15-11.15am (Tea and coffee provided)

This 6-week course is for parents and carers of pre-teen and teenagers (11-16years). It aims to help adults understand how they can best support their teenage children to navigate increasing independence; develop confidence, security and resilience; and promote and benefit from emotional wellbeing. The latest research around what helps support emotional wellbeing throughout life is used. This includes adolescent brain development, risk taking behaviour, importance of communication and the effects of stress. The course provides an opportunity to explore with other parents how the teenage years can be a time for the whole family to ‘thrive rather than just survive’.
