Events & Workshops

We currently run groups in the North East of Melbourne in a variety of community, school and kinder/childcare settings. Each weekly session runs for two hours.The sessions are broken up into facilitated discussion, experiential learning and home practice. Detailed session notes are provided each week. We have fun and all benefit from a sense of sharing our parenting in a safe and non judgemental environment.

Tuning in to KidsTM and Tuning in to TeensTM: Emotionally Intelligent Parenting


Tuning in to Kids and Tuning in to Teens have been put together and heavily researched by the team at Mindful - The Centre for Training and Research in Developmental Health, Melbourne. They are evidence-based programs with proven results.The programs involve learning about emotional intelligence and how to coach your child through their emotions and help them develop an emotional tool kit. We look at the importance of self care for parents, mindfullness and being able to be fully present with our children.There is plenty of time for discussion, exploring topics such as our own experiences as children and how that colours our own parenting. Over the weeks you will practise different techniques with your children at home and then have the opportunity to discuss and hone these techniques. By the end of the program our aim is that you will feel confident that you have a unique roadmap that works for you and your children.

Tuning in to Kids: Emotionally Intelligent ParentingTM is a parenting program that teaches you how to help your child understand and regulate their emotions. It is suitable for parents of toddlers through to Grade 6 children. You will learn how to recognise your child’s less obvious emotional experiences as an opportunity for closeness and teaching. TIK research shows that when we focus on less intense emotions and we give our children the opportunity and language to express how they are feeling plus the skills to problem solve, their behaviour improves and life is calmer!


Programs run for 2 hours every week for 7 weeks. COST: $160 / $240 couples


Tuning in to Teens: Emotionally Intelligent ParentingTM shows you how to help your teen develop emotional intelligence and keep the lines of communciation open. This helps your teen to be more assertive and strong in situations of peer pressure, have greater success with making friends and be more able to manage conflict with peers. Teens with high emotional intelligence are more able to cope when upset or angry, have fewer mental health and substance abuse difficulties and more stable and satisfying relationships. It is suitable for parents of children in Grade 6 to approxmimately 16 years of age.
