November 11, 2020 @ 12:45 pm - 5:00 pm


Tuning in to Kids is an evidence based parenting program developed by Dr. Sophie Havighurst and Ann Harley in Melbourne, Australia with research trials conducted through The University of Melbourne. The program provides a new way of working with families that focuses on the emotional connection between parents and children. The program teaches parents skills in emotion coaching, which is to recognise, understand and manage their own and their children’s emotions.

Tuning in to Kids ONLINE VIA ZOOM is a 3-half-day professional development workshop that gives trainees a grounding in the concepts of Emotional Intelligence and Emotion Coaching. The workshop blends lecture-style and experiential learning modules. Pre-reading and video material will be sent prior to the first session. This workshop is suitable for all experienced and qualified workers in the caring sector whose client base includes children (approximately 3 – 10 years) and their parents.
