Tuning into Teens

Tuning in to Teens™ is a parenting program that focuses on emotions and is designed to assist parents to establish stronger relationships with their teenage children.

The program provides parents with a greater understanding of their teen's emotional experiences while teaching specific skills that can assist in being supportive, empathic and staying connected with the young person.

It further aims to improve parent's emotional awareness, regulation and communication style and provide them with an opportunity to reflect on their own emotion socialisation experience. Tuning in to Teens™ aims to prevent problems developing and enhance emotional and behavioural functioning.
