Parent / Carer Courses
Schools and Colleges Early Support Service
We would like to invite you to attend the May 2023 webinar series specially tailored for parents/carers of adolescents, in collaboration with the Schools and Colleges Early Support Service.
Topics have been chosen to reflect core developmental processes in adolescence and common difficulties parents can struggle with. The content is psychoeducational, strategy-based and solution focused. The webinars will cover the following topics:
· Anxiety in adolescence: how can parents help?
· Adolescent self–harm: how to make sense of it and when to seek support
· Weathering the storms of strong teen emotions: do’s, don’ts and when to consider talking to someone
· Building resilience, staying connected and nurturing your relationship with your teen
· Managing teen behaviour that challenges: tips and tricks
We have two NEW webinars taking place this term:
· Supporting a young person at exam times
· Low mood in adolescence
