  Raising Teens with Confidence

This six week course is for parents and carers of teens.

It aims to help adults understand how they can best support their teenage children to

  • navigate increasing independence
  • develop confidence, security and resilience
  • promote and benefit from emotional wellbeing.

The latest research around what helps support emotional wellbeing throughout life is used.

This includes adolescent brain development, risk taking behaviour, importance of communication and the effects of stress.

The course provides an opportunity to explore with other parents how the teenage years can be a time for the whole family to ‘thrive rather than just survive’ (Siegel 2014)!

Courses run during term time in secondary schools across the city.
