Tuning into Teens Program

Are you a parent or carer of a young person aged between 12-18 and would like to:

  • Be better at talking with your teen?
  • Be better at understanding your teen?
  • Help your teen learn to manage their emotions?
  • Help to prevent behaviour problems in your teen?
  • Teach your teen to deal with conflict?

Tuning in to Teens shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence.
Adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:

  • are more aware, assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure
  • have greater success with making friends and are more able to manage conflict with peers
  • are more able to cope when upset or angry
  • have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties
  • have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults
  • have greater career success – emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ!
