Centacare NQ

TINT & TINK Professional Training Workshop

Centacare North Queensland will host a three-day professional training workshop in June to educate professionals the key skills taught to parents in both the Tuning in to Teens (TINT) and Tuning in to Kids (TINK) programs. 

Presented by Christiane Kehoe of The University of Melbourne, TINT and TINK are emotion focused pareting programs for parents of children aged 3 1/2 years to 18 years. The programs target specific skills of emotion awareness, acceptance and coaching and incorporate self-care and mindfulness. TINT presents parents with additional material on adolescent development and the changes and challenges that this age and stage bring to family life. 

The programs meet a significant gap in available interventions for parents/carers of children and teens. They target the attachment between parents/carers and their children, improving the way parents communicate emotionally. Both programs have been researched at the University of Melbourne and are evidence based.

What is included in the training?

The training will teach professionals the key skills taught to parents in the program using direct teaching, watching DVDs, demonstration, small group exercises, role plays and group discussion. There is a separate manual for each program.

When:
Tuesday 25th, Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th June, 2019 from 9am to 5pm each day

Location:
Centacare North Queensland at 410 Ross River Rd, Cranbrook, Townsville.

Investment:
Registration fee includes 3 full days of training, with catering provided.  Cost is $2,376 per person (inc GST). Participants must be able to attend for all 3 days of the training.

Registration:
Limited spaces, register by Thursday 20th June, 2019 (payment is required to secure a position). Please contact Rachel on 1300 672 273 or email centacarenq@centacarenq.org.au
