Tuning in to Teens
Conducted under the license of the University of Melbourne Tuning in to Teens™ program is designed for parents of adolescents aged 10-18 years.
The program teaches parents how to help their teen 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
This program is a six-week evidence-based program for parents of 9-18 year olds run for 2 hours per week.
Tuning in to Teens™ involves watching video material, group discussions and exercises, role plays, reading information, and home activities where you try out different ways of responding to your child’s emotions.
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.
