WAYS Counselling Team conducted an Effective Parenting Course with Waverly Council which commenced on Tuesday 26 October from 6.00 – 7.00pm virtually.

This seminar was designed for parents with children aged 10-17, who want practical information and effective and strategies to develop good communication, healthy relationships and better understand and manage adolescent behaviour.
The seminar was led by clinical psychologist, Dr Terri Said, CEO of WAYS Youth & Family and WAYS Secondary Principal.
Topics included: Understanding adolescent development and brain function, effective communication, managing conflict and challenging behaviours, helping young people stay connected with education, and building resilience and managing social media.

As expected the course received enrolments within the first few weeks of advertising and was booked out 2 weeks before the course had started.
