Study on Supportive Parent-Teen Relationships

The Parenting and Family Support Centre at the University of Queensland (UQ) is seeking parents and their teenager (aged between 11 and 17 years) to take part in new research on the links between supportive parent-adolescent relationships and adolescent well-being.

Parents and teenagers will take part in an assessment session at the University of Qld’s St Lucia Campus. Participating parents 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.

Further information on the study, eligibility criteria, and online registration are available via the Parenting Teenagers website (click here).

Participation in this study is open until the end of 2018.
