Rainbow Families is presenting a workshop series for LGBTQ+ parents and carers who want to brush up on their parenting skills find new ways of dealing with their children’s behaviour and learn new approaches to dealing with behavioural challenges. It is also a chance to meet other LGBTQ+ parents, enjoy learning new skills and gain information about further support.
This interactive four week program incorporates principles of the evidence-based Tuning In To Kids, Triple P, Protective behaviours and Circle of Security programs to provide a suite of parenting strategies designed to foster emotional intelligence, improve the management of misbehaviour, build protective factors and strengthen family relationships.
The sessions offer a safe, supportive environment where you can share your thoughts and ideas, and learn from others with similar experiences. You will experience a positive, practical approach that builds on strengths within yourself and in your relationships. The learning environment will be a safe space for LGBTQ+ parents and carers to share their experience and learn new skills. The sessions are suitable for parents with children aged up to 12 years old.
The four week course builds on skills from week to week, so attendance each week is preferred. There are only 10 spaces available, so if you are interested please make sure you can attend all four sessions. Sessions are from 6-8pm in Campsie and light refreshments will be provided.
