Being a teenager is tough, being a parent to a teenager can feel even tougher, but being a teenager who is also carrying the additional weight of trauma and adverse childhood experiences is tougher than both combined.

This course looks at some of the difficulties that all teenagers face but also, how growing up in care can exacerbate the already very difficult developmental changes and stages of adolescence.

Tools and tips are provided to aid understanding and to nurture a new way of thinking about teenagers and their external behavioural expressions whilst always linking how they behave to how they feel.

  1. Great insight into the feelings that drive teenage behaviour

    5

    ★★★★★

    A thought-provoking course that highlights how teenagers in care think and feel about us, the system, and the world around them. Ultimately, providing a better understanding of what drives their behaviour.
    Understanding that their “behaviour makes them feel what they feel” and how we, as carers, can help and support them to create a more safe, understanding home environment in which they can successfully grow into young adults.
    Ultimately, that seeking to exercise control over teenagers is futile, and that it is only through building a trusted relationship can we help them navigate their own feelings which in turn, will help them make better sense of the world they were born into.
    An excellent course and one I would highly recommend.

  2. The Joys of Teens

    5

    ★★★★★

    I care for teens (#teamteens) and I found this course to be insightful, hard hitting in places, brutally honest, informative and personal. Scott always makes it feel that hes in the room with you when you’re doing an online course and this is rare. He and his information will keep you engaged throughout and come out the end with not only a certificate but also many thoughts and feelings that will last a long time. Always refreshing to do a Section 31 course.

    ★★★★★

    Really good course that reminds you that behaviour is communication of a need. Great for those with teenagers in the house but also for those who are looking after younger children who are approaching their teenage years.
