What People Are Saying

“I’m a little in awe of this program. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed more, or believed more, in a program than I do with Tuning in to Teens (TINT). The training solidified my commitment to this delivery, and the supervision reinforces confidence and keeps us on the right path.”

“We love working with families exploring the Tuning in to Kids program. The ideas resonate with all families, and the practical exercises really bring the concepts to life.”

— Facilitator, Royal Far West

“One of the main things I love about teaching TIK is when I can witness parents beginning to realise how this impacts their own relational skills with others and how their level of emotional capacity is important. Often we see families arriving thinking their child has a problem and at the end of the program we can see them mentally shift towards more empathic curiosity and openness which has a such a positive influence on all the family.”

— Facilitator, Royal Far West

We offer FREE monthly online supervision sessions for trained facilitators.
