Coping With Family Life and Teens
What is Family Communications About?
The development of this course came about from a perceived need to develop skills-based parenting programmes aligned with an approach that is ‘preventative, empowering, building on family strengths, enhancing self-esteem and a sense of being able to influence events in one’s life.
The programme explores the many changes and challenges that occur for teens as they move through puberty and how you as a parent can support your teen at this vulnerable time. Parents will have an opportunity to reflect on the many behavioural challenges that teens can present with such as power struggles with parents and sibling rivalry. As a parent, the programme helps you to learn when to step in and when to step back.
