SOUTH EASTERN TRUST
A workshop for Foster Carers
The aim of this workshop is to explore some of the practical issues that arise in parenting teenagers and some strategies to strengthen relationships at home.
When our children hit those teenage years the changes we see as parents can take us by surprise. This practical workshop will revisit some ideas that can improve relationships at home and build protective factors that can prevent problems that can arise with risk taking behaviour.
This half day training session aims to help participants:
- Explore the nature of adolescence and adolescent brain development
- Increase understanding of risk and protective factors that can make a difference in our children’s lives
- Explore practical strategies that could improve communication, reduce conflict and strengthen relationships
- Strengthen carers strategies for looking after themselves.
