Triple P Courses for Parents / Caregivers of Tweens to Teens
Some children and teenagers worry more than others. When they become extra-worried, anxious feelings can start to affect everyday life. They may often be upset and fearful, become withdrawn, or even feel ‘sick with worry’. But with the right support, they can gain confidence and break free from anxiety. When they get help to develop their own toolkit of coping skills, they can deal with difficult emotions in healthy ways. It will help them right now, and in the future!
Each Select Seminar Series of three topics targets everyday concerns, such as how to encourage responsible behaviour, improve family relationships, deal with independence or manage problems at school or with friends. Each seminar lasts approximately 60-90 minutes with time for questions at the end. These brief introductions to the Triple P strategies provide great ideas to try at home. There are three different seminars in the Teen Triple P series:
Raising Responsible Teenagers: Get new ideas to encourage your teenager to make good decisions, be respectful, considerate, reliable and involved in family life.
Raising Competent Teenagers: Set your teenager up for life with the strategies in this seminar. Find out how to help them communicate well, develop good routines and self-discipline, follow rules and solve problems.
Getting Teenagers Connected: Learn ways to build your child’s confidence, encourage their social skills, help them meet commitments and encourage them to take care of others.
