Home 9 Events 9 EVENT: Engaging (Tech-obsessed) Adolescents – April 2021


// Because teenagers don’t come with an operating manual and the digital playground is complex.

Due to popular demand – I’ll be running a second series of the ‘Engaging Adolescents’ program (created by Australian psychologist and author, Michael Hawton).

The weekly, 90-minute Zoom sessions run over 4 weeks. The final session is dedicated to managing technology and screen-based media use issues.

Parents will gain a renewed sense of confidence about the role they can play in their teenagers’ lives, without conversations morphing into arguments. 

+ DATES: 4 x 90-minute Zoom sessions held on Mondays on Apr 19, 26, May 3 and 10, 2021 at 7pm. Each session builds upon the previous.

+ BOOK NOW via Humanitix

+ LOGISTICS: All ticket holders will receive a Zoom link inviting you to the event. If you can’t attend the live event – you will receive a recording of the webinar to catch up on.
