H Would you like to train to run Tuning in to Kids or 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 9 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
Both Tuning in to Kids and Tuning in to Teens workshops are 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.
We are taking expressions of interest for the next training in the UK as well as training in Norway. In the UK the plan is to run a two day workshop in Bridgwater, Somerset 11 th and 12 th November.
