Parenting Adolescents – Bronagh Starrs

30 September 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Adolescent experience is becoming increasingly complex as young people adjust and respond to living in our present-day world.

Mental health has become the principal concern, as teenagers struggle with a host of issues such as anxiety, school attendance, academic pressure, gender diversity, substance misuse, navigating social media and living in often complicated family compositions on a vulnerable planet. Parents, as a result, often feel powerless to influence their struggling teen.

In this one-day workshop, designed specifically for parents, we will explore a contemporary understanding of adolescence, identifying three principal character styles within the modern day adolescent’s life space. As young people have evolved, so too have parenting approaches.

Bronagh will demonstrate how each configuration style in adolescence elicits a predictable response in parents. We will examine the many challenges and dilemmas facing parents in today’s world, highlighting the patterns and pitfalls which often render parental interventions ineffective. A trove of helpful strategies will be presented.
