Connected Parenting for Teens, with Lisa Qualls

What does connected parenting look like with teens? Many parents have learned TBRI® (Trust-Based Relational Intervention) skills that work well with younger children but don’t quite fit their teens. You can build trust and connection with teens using the skills you have.

In this training, you will:

  • Learn to adapt TBRI® strategies to reflect your teen’s developmental stage.
  • Identify creative ways to nurture a teen.
  • Build connection by making the relationship the center of every interaction.
