About the event

Tuning in to Teens™ is a parenting program that guides parents in ways to help teens learn to understand and regulate their emotions.

The program teaches parents how to help their teens develop emotional intelligence. Studies suggest Emotional Intelligence may be a better predictor of academic & career success than IQ.

  • We know adolescents with higher emotional intelligence:
  • Are more aware, assertive, and strong in situations of peer pressure
  • Have greater success making friends and are more able to manage conflict
  • Are more able to cope when upset or angry
  • Have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties

Tuning in to Teens™ involves watching video material, group discussions and exercises, role plays, reading the information, and home activities where you try out different ways of responding to your child’s emotions.

Participating parents are encouraged to share experiences and ideas within the group and group leaders may use these as examples to explain and teach the skills of emotion coaching.

The Process of the Intensive:

The typical facilitation of the Tuning in to Teens™ program is one session per week for six weeks. The Poppet Centre has found that many busy families find this extended commitment a challenge, so we have created an intensive 4-step model that works better for our client group.

Here's how it works...

  1. One full day of theory and group coaching;
  2. One 90-minute individual coaching session with one of the facilitators within 6-days from completion of the full days training;
  3. Voluntary participation in our peer group open-ended coaching with other past participants; and
  4. One 90-minute review coaching session with one of the facilitators within 3-weeks of the first individual coaching session.

We find this approach is more flexible for busy families, and we are more able to adapt the coaching content to suit specific family dynamics.
