Event description

This support group has been set up specifically for carers of teenagers, who may be struggling, or would like to better cope with some of the behaviours that their young people are showing. 

The group will be facilitated by Thinking Aloud and will aim to meet once every 6 weeks during term time. The programme will very much be determined by yourselves, as this series of support groups has been set up with you in mind to meet your current needs.

It would be helpful if you could email catherine.charlton@southglos.gov.uk  any particular issues that you would perhaps like covered in advance, as a more detailed programme could be drawn up ahead of the sessions, if we know what the issues are.

Learning outcomes

An hour or so will be spent on the identfiied focus.  Then the remaining time will be spent very much as a reflective session, or an active problem solving session, this being driven by the needs that the carers present, bring to the group on that particular day.

These sessions will therefore offer both a means of learning and reflection, and as such are likely to be a mix of teaching type presentations as well as reflective thinking/shared experiences between you all.
