Parents of participating families will also have the opportunity to attend a free 2-hour parenting discussion group on “Coping with Teenagers’ Emotions” based on the successful Teen Triple P (Positive Parenting Program). The 2-hour Teen Triple P discussion group will give parents strategies to understand and support their teenager in dealing with difficult emotions. Results from this study will help researchers develop better ways to support young people experiencing anxiety or conduct behaviour problems, and their families.
The University of Queensland is starting a new research study investigating parent-adolescent relationships and the links between supportive parent-adolescent relationships and adolescent well-being. They are currently seeking parents and their teenagers (aged 11 to 17) to take part in an assessment session at the UQ St Lucia Campus.
