Parenting Our Teens
Therapeutic support for parents of adopted teenagers
What is Parenting our Teens?
Parenting our Teens is a unique four-day training programme for parents of adopted teenagers run by Adoption UK.
Parenting our Teens is peer-led and will help parents and carers of teenagers gain an understanding of their teenagers needs, learn strategies to help their teenager and themselves, and get some valuable peer support. It is research-based and was developed in response to requests from adoption support teams who have identified a need for a teen-focus programme for their local adoptive parents.
Parenting our Teens is broadly based on our well-known Parenting our Children programme and includes new elements that specifically address the issues faced by parents with teens who have experienced trauma in their early life.
