Tuning into Teens Parenting Program

By Ms Sophie Chang, School Psychologist

Radford's Secondary School counselling team is offering the Tuning into Teens™ parenting program over six sessions, on campus, between 5-7 pm on Mondays, from 4 May to 8 June 2023.

This program is for parents with a student in Years 7-12.  Tuning into Teens is an evidence-based program using the principles of emotional intelligence and emotional coaching to enhance parenting skills. 

Tuning into Teens™ is a six-session parenting program that aims to assist parents with developing the skills to talk with their teens about emotions, develop emotional intelligence in teens and help with conflict management in the home. 

This program works with the principle of emotional intelligence.  Teens with higher emotional intelligence:

  • Are more aware and assertive and stronger in situations with peer pressure.
  • Have greater success with making friends and better able to manage conflict with their peers.
  • Are more able to cope when they are upset or angry.
  • Have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties.
  • Have more stable and satisfying relationships as adults.
  • Have greater career success - emotional intelligence may be a better predictor of academic and career success than IQ.
