Veritas House will again conduct the popular Positive Parenting Program or ‘Teen Triple P’ commencing on Tuesday, 15 August and is urging Bathurst parents and carers to register now to reserve their place.
The program involves five 2-hour group sessions, and participants can attend either in the mornings from 10am-12, or in the evenings from 6-8pm. Facilitated by the Veritas Adolescent and Family Counsellor who is an accredited Triple P trainer, the program is designed to provide carers of children in Years 5-11 with the information and skills needed to deal consistently and decisively with problem behaviour and to encourage positive behaviours.
“Teenage years certainly bring many challenges and Teen Triple P is designed to assist parents and carers to provide a home environment that guides and supports teenagers as they strive to become independent, well-adjusted young adults,” explained Veritas Counsellor, Graham Palmer.
Through funding from the Department of Family and Community Services, Veritas is able to deliver the course free-of-charge, but numbers are limited. To reserve your place or for more information, contact Graham on 6332 3882.
