Talking to Teens Programme


Based on the most recent research on adolescence, and consistent with the principles of the Nurturing Programme, the groups provide a positive view of teenage development and focus on relationships within the family, communication, negotiating, decision-making and strategies to reduce conflict.

The programme consists of four sessions, developed with Dr.John Coleman, to increase parents’ understanding of teenagers’ feelings and behaviour, and deliver key strategies for maintaining and improving relationships.

Key topics:

  • Exploring the importance of parents for teenagers

  • Developing parents’ understanding of teenage development and the influence of brain development on behaviour

  • Developing parents’ understanding of the importance of listening, verbal and non-verbal communication

  • Promoting positive approaches to boundary setting and problem-solving

  • Providing an opportunity for parents to share their experience with others
