Description

Parenting Teenagers
Your Parenting Superpowers & The Relationships that Mean the Most
Presented by: Dr. Jody Carrington

Struggling with connecting with your teenager or the teens you work with? Wondering what discipline strategies to use? Dealing with an aloof, angry, anxious, withdrawn, or depressed teen and you’re not sure how to manage it? Or perhaps you just want to know the best way to rekindle the relationship you once had with your child.

Jody believes that human connections shape neural connections. Through the relationships that children have with their parent and caregivers, they begin to develop the “story” of themselves and others around them, and they decide two things: whether they are worthy of love and support and whether they are capable and competent beings. Teens and children are in constant search of the “bigger, stronger, kinder, wise”; they need an anchor. When they have these things in place, they have a much greater chance of developing into strong, healthy, respectful, and competent adults. Jody will help parents and professionals how to better connect with teens, and how to maintain respectful and warm relationship while still holding teens responsible for their behavior. Dr. Carrington is excited to join parents, caregivers, and professionals to talk about adult-teen relationships and how we balance this crazy, hectic life, and stay connected through it all.

Objectives:

  • Identify tools that foster healthy brain development in teens and tweens
  • Describe ways in which many current strategies are developmentally inappropriate
  • Recognize triggers in children and how to take proactive* verses reactive approach
  • Implement a variety of strategies to cope with emotional dysregulation
  • Understand how to reach your teens and promote psychological growth


Refreshments will be provided at the event but participants will need to take care of their lunch (a break will be provided between 12:00-1:00pm).

A certificate of completion will be granted to participants at the end of the day.

Refunds issued up to 30 days prior to the event, and transferable at any time.
