Adolescence Course

In Vancouver via Zoom from January 2022 to June 2022!

Adolescence Course: 6 General Sessions + 5 Small Group Discussions

For parents of children 14-17 yrs (or soon to be).

In this course, parents discover the value of their adolescent children and discover how to efficiently communicate in moments of crisis. In addition, they will analyze the social tendencies that impact the development of their adolescent’s fragile personality.

The topics in this course will be discussed using the case-study method (pioneered by the Harvard Business School). This will provide you and your spouse with a practical and objective framework with which to approach a variety of situations you may encounter in family life.

There are 6 General sessions via Zoom on Saturday 2:30-4pm PT and 5 Small Group study meetings. Each General Session will have a trained moderator, who has a focus in that particular topic of parenting.

Join us for a fabulous course and an opportunity to network with other parents!

Course Feedback

The sessions didn't tell us "what to do" but gave good tools to use ourselves.
