When working with Teens you’re bound to hit a bit of turbulence. They’re attracted to risk. They’re distracted from school. They’re prone to latching onto digital platforms exposing them to risks such as cyber bullying, porn and gaming addiction.

They seem to be increasingly attached to one other and less and less attached to us. In a world like this how are we supposed to keep them safe from harm?

Adrienne Wood brings a fresh approach to navigating Teen Turbulence. Using the attachment-based developmental theory of Canadian psychologist Gordon Neufeld, Adrienne helps parents and professionals find psychological insight into the adult – teen dynamic.

Adrienne will outline:
- Common factors that trigger Teen Turbulence and put our youth at risk of harm
- How Neufeld theory provides an alternative approach with adolescents
- The concept of “Shielding” and how we as adults can protect teens from the full impact of the turbulent events in their lives with a gentler approach.

Don’t miss this opportunity to better understand teen turbulence and learn how to better reconnect with the young people in your life.

This seminar is equally appropriate for parents of Teens, parents of Tweens and for professionals working with Adolescents.
