Understanding Teens: An educational course for parents of 12-17 year olds.

The adolescent stage of development can be a challenging time for both parent and child.  Understanding Teens is a six session online course which has been developed for parents to gain a richer understanding of their teenager’s behaviour and development.  This course provides parents with evidenced explanations for changes in teenage behaviour, and with relationship based strategies to boost young people’s self-esteem and wellbeing into adulthood.

What does the programme involve?

  • First of all this is not group therapy, currently this is run as an online class.

  • NHS professionals teach you tried and tested (evidence-based) methods of dealing with anxiety, emotion regulation and managing behaviour in teens

  • You will receive free workbooks for each session

  • You will not be asked to share your personal experiences

How will this help me?

  • The course will show you how to use positive parenting techniques in day-to-day life in the context of supporting your teen in managing their emotional distress

  • The course will also give you an understanding of what behaviours are typical of teens, and when to seek further help
