Our trained facilitators deliver this evidence-based parenting programme
The Adolescents Programme considers how parents can connect with and build good relationships with their teenage children, while also being firm and influential in their lives. The DVD for this programme illustrates well-researched principles of effective communication and conflict resolution which parents can use with their teenagers, with the aim of helping them grow into responsible young adults. As well as role-play scenes and interviews with parents, the DVDs include interviews with young people about what it is like to be a teenager and their views about what makes families run smoothly.
