Tuning IN TO Kids
A six session program for parents of children aged 3-12 years
'Tuning in to Kids' is an evidence-based parenting program that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. In particular the program teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting, supportive way. This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions.
'Tuning in to Kids' has been shown in research to lead to positive outcomes including improved parent-child relationships, children’s emotional competence and behaviour. The program has been particularly effective with children with clinical-level emotional and behavioural difficulties.
This program will be facilitated by Dr Jessica Green. Jess is a Clinical Psychologist with over six years of experience working with children and families and running the 'Tuning in to Kids' program.
