Therapeutic Parenting: Responding Therapeutically to Challenging Behaviours – Elizabeth

Do you sometimes feel like parenting is just all hard work? Do you wish you could understand why your child does what they do? Do you wish you and your child could have more fun together?

Has your family experienced relationship breakdown, grief, violence or other trauma? When a family goes through a difficult time the ‘fun’ in family can be lost, and parenting can seem to be a constant challenge.

This program will help you to better understand your child’s behaviours and help you to respond in ways that is good for both you and your child.

Join us as we explore therapeutic parenting together.

“Fantastic course! It has made such a difference in the way in which I handle everyday experiences with my teenager. I would highly recommend to anyone who is facing challenging behaviours to do this course – it works – and it works well! I arrived very stressed and emotional – I left calm and relaxed!” Course Participant.
