Connecting With Your Teen
Being a parent is one of the hardest jobs in the world at the best of times. When children reach their teenage years, connecting can become very different from how it was in earlier years. Communication forms the basis of relationship which can sometimes be a strain on the whole family during this time.
This interactive workshop looks at exploring ways of reaching your young person so that you both feel heard and understood. We will look at ways of finding common ground and enhancing listening skills.
Tuesday April 10th, 18:00–20:30
Saturday April 14th, 10:00–12:30
What’s All This Anger About?
Anger and aggressive confrontations can be the most difficult situations to deal with. It may seem like your teenager is angry all of the time or they may just have an outburst now and again. It may not feel like it but this is all very normal! This workshop looks beyond the face of anger and explores what is going on within the angry young person.
We will look at the process of anger, how this affects us and what strategies we can use in times of crisis that are helpful. By the end of this workshop you will have learnt effective de-escalation techniques and developed your understanding to give you confidence in the future.
Thursday April 12th, 18:00–20:30
Saturday April 14th, 13:00–15:30
