Would you like to train to run Tuning in to Teens Parenting Groups?
Tuning in to Teens is a 2-day professional development workshop that gives trainees a grounding in the concepts of Emotional Intelligence and Emotion Coaching as well as useful information about teenage brain development. The workshop blends lecture-style and experiential learning modules. This workshop is suitable for all experienced and qualified workers in the caring sector whose client base includes adolescents and pre-adolescents (approximately 10 years and up) and their parents. Participants who complete the workshop receive a certificate that authorises them to deliver the Tuning in to Teens 6-week parenting program to parents and carers
Tuning in to Teens will be run by Associate Professor Sophie Havighurst who is one of the founder members of the Melbourne Team at The Mindful Centre, Melbourne University. Sophie is currently on a two year placement working in Norway.
The 2 day training will run on 15th and 16th April 2019 in Danesfield Middle School, Williton, West Somerset, TA4 4SW between 8.30 am and 5pm. The nearest airports are Exeter or Bristol and the nearest mainline train station is Taunton. We will arrange a pick up from Taunton train station the evening of 14 th April. For those with cars there are plenty of Air BnB options for accommodation. Otherwise I will be driving from Minehead and happy to car share. Minehead has the advantage of having a range of hotels and restaurants - as well as having a sandy beach.
The cost is likely to be £900 per person for block bookings of more than 4 staff or £950 per person including a manual or £880 per person without a manual. To purchase manuals on the day will cost £155.
