Tuning In To Teens

The Tuning in to Teens™ (TinT™) is an offshoot of the Tuning in to Kids™ program, drawing on the work of researchers and practitioners working in the area of adolescent emotions.  The program focusses on developing supportive, emotionally responsive parenting – characteristics that are central in a secure attachment relationship. The central idea behind Tuning in to Teens™ is that young people develop their capacity to think about emotional experiences and regulate their responses when their parents attend to difficult emotions of low to moderate intensity, and when they support, soothe and help their teen to learn about and regulate emotions. Tuning in to Teens™ is designed to teach parents about emotions in themselves and their young people and how to ’emotion coach’ young people through sometimes difficult emotional times. Emotion Coaching is a parenting technique that helps young people understand their feelings. When parents Emotion Coach, young people learn how emotions work and how to react to feelings in healthy ways. Research has shown that emotion coaching is a valuable lifelong skill, helping to build a resilient and empathetic community.

Criteria: Parents and carers of young people

Session Dates: Wednesday 17th, 24th, 31st May and 7th June, 2017

Location: St Joseph's School - 36 Twelfth Street, Renmark

Time: 7pm - 9.30pm
