Beyond Blame: Coping with Parent-Adolescent Conflict

Beyond Blame: Coping with Parent-Adolescent Conflict

Friday 13 September 2019, 7:30pm—9:00pm

Conflict between children/adolescents and their parents/caregivers can range from small disagreements to full on WWIII. Sometimes conflict can be sorted quickly and other times it can feel like it will last forever. Conflict within families is fairly normal, but too much can be risky for children and teenagers wellbeing and psychosocial adjustment. Conflict management is good for you, your relationships and your children/teens.

Conflict between children/adolescents and their parents/caregivers can range small disagreements to full on WWIII. Sometimes conflict can be sorted quickly and other times it can feel like it will last forever. Conflict within families is fairly normal, but too much can be risky for children and teenagers wellbeing and psychosocial adjustment. Conflict management is good for you, your relationships and your children/teens. Fathers, mothers and caregivers are significant role models for teaching young people how to manage and resolve conflict.
Come along if you would like to learn more about:
• Sources of conflict – why conflict increases during adolescence.
• Patterns of conflict – how conflict increases in frequency and intensity.
• Conflict resolutions styles – (e.g., problem-solving, engagement, avoidance/withdrawal, compliance).
• Dos and don’t’s for Dads – rules of engagement.
