New research to explore how parent-adolescent relationships influence youth mental health
Would you like to learn how to better manage your teenager's emotions?
The Parenting and Family Support Centre at The University of Queensland is seeking parents and their teenager (aged between 11 and 17) to take part in new research on the links between supportive parent-adolescent relationships and adolescent well-being. The research is conducted by Clarissa Lui.
Parents and teenagers will take part in an assessment session at the UQ St Lucia Campus. Parents of participating families will also have the opportunity to attend a free 2-hour parenting discussion group on "Coping with Teenagers' Emotions" based on the successful Teen Triple P (Positive Parenting Program).
The 2-hour Teen Triple P discussion group will give parents strategies to understand and support their teenager in dealing with difficult emotions. Results from this study will help researchers develop better ways to support young people experiencing anxiety or conduct behaviour problems, and their families.
The study has been cleared in accordance with the ethical review processes of the University of Queensland and is in accordance with the National Health and Medical Research Council’s guidelines.
