After the Disaster - Parenting Seminar

As a parent or carer, a natural disaster can be an extremely challenging time for your family. It can be especially difficult to help your child or teen cope with the emotional distress they may experience. You might be unsure how to help. Disaster Recovery Triple P is a free seminar brought to you by the Triple P – Positive Parenting Program®, one of the most proven parenting programs in the world.


Attend this seminar to learn more about:

• Understanding common reactions in children and teenagers

• Tips for helping your child manage their emotions

• Things that can contribute to extra distress

• Why some children are more affected than others

• Common parenting “traps” and how to avoid them

• How to answer your children’s questions

• Other strategies that can help the whole family bounce back emotionally

This is a great opportunity to gain valuable knowledge and skills to support your family during challenging times
