How Teens Tick - A workshop for parents

How Teens Tick is a practical workshop for parents that explores the teenage brain and how it impacts thoughts, feelings and behaviour at school and at home.



Saturday 23 January 2016

10.00am – 4.00pm

Bridge House, Framlingham


The Workshop Coaches

Dr Hazel Harrison, Clinical Psychologist and founder of ThinkAvellana, has over ten years’ experience in the NHS and private sector. Hazel’s postgraduate research on the psychological and social aspects of teenage development defined one of her career goals – finding ways teenagers can flourish. Hazel regularly shares ideas about psychology and parenting on her Twitter account and her Facebook page.

Sarah-Jane Page, Director of eastuition, is a learning specialist and educational practitioner with more than fifteen years’ experience of working with teens. Her career has been dedicated to helping teens break down barriers to learning so they can recognise their strengths and raise their personal achievement. Sarah-Jane believes that once teens find the keys that fit them, individual potential can be unlocked.


The Workshop Details

The workshop comprises of five comprehensive sessions – three in the morning and two in the afternoon.

The ‘ticking’

1 - How the cogs turn

Sharing the latest scientific research, Hazel explores the inner workings of the teenage brain and why a basic understanding of neuroscience matters when parenting teens.

2 - Why teens tick the way they do

Sarah-Jane and Hazel seek to answer some of the big questions about the essence of being a teen:

  • Why are school friends so important?

  • Why are risks so enticing?

  • Why are emotions felt so strongly?

  • Why is social media so addictive?

  • Why do the opinions of others matter so much?

  • Why is identity so hard to grasp?

  • Why don’t teens learn from their mistakes?

3 - Why only a Rolex will do

Drawing on the latest advances in education theory and her experience at the chalkface, Sarah-Jane addresses the principles, practicalities and pitfalls of learning. With a focus on the different ways we learn, you’ll discover why reaching individual potential as a teenager is so important and how parents can encourage achievement.

The ‘clicking’

4 & 5 - How to read ‘teen time’ to synchronise your clocks

Hazel and Sarah-Jane discuss practical ways to apply the knowledge behind the ways teens ‘tick’. Parents will explore how to use ‘the art of timing’ to build a strong relationship with their teen.

Practical activities and hands-on advice will give parents the chance to consider small changes that will make big differences in helping teens reach their full potential. Once you’ve discovered the PLACE for your teen, together you can connect and thrive through the adolescent years.


Once you get how they tick, you’ll click.
