Working things out – parents

Parenting courses 24-25

TESSA and Family Routes are excited to announce Working Things Out Programme in collaboration with Holywood Family Trust and Parent Plus. Aimed at helping parents support their TEENS in developing skills and techniques to boost their emotional health and wellbeing

The Working Things Out programme aims to help parents build communication and conflict resolution skills with their TEENS. The sessions are designed around a DVD containing personal stories of adolescents who have coped with challenging mental health issues such as, Anxiety, Depression, ADHD, OCD, Self-harm and Suicide, as well as issues such as, Bullying, School Pressures, and Conflict with Parents.

These stories offer opportunities for parents to work through ways to support their TEENS in facing some of these challenges.

This course would be particularly beneficial for anyone whose TEEN participated in the programme aimed at young people however it is open to all parents of adoptive teens.

Topics include:
· Improving family relationships.
· Stop and Think – The key to solving problems.
· Listening, talking and resolving conflicts.
· Managing feeling down- Things I can do to help myself.
· Taking Charge – Developing helpful thinking strategies.
· Keeping Your Cool – Dealing with anger and conflict.
· Communicating Well – For building positive relationships.

The course will be tailored to the group so may not cover all topics.
