A course program for parents and carers.
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 parenting skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and respond to children’s emotions in an accepting and supportive way.
This approach helps the child to understand and manage their emotions.
This series of FREE online workshops are a partnership between our Family Relationship Support for Carers Service and Kate French, Clinical Psychologist at Side by Side Psychology. Kate has been a Tuning in to Kids® and Tuning in to Teens® facilitator for years and is passionate about helping children become more resilient and have better emotional regulation skills.
