A course for parents of troubled adolescents: some observations

  • David Goldberg (a1) and Eileen Garside (a2)
Abstract
Aims and method

An education-based course for parents of adolescents with mental health problems is described.

Results

The structure of the 12–week course evolved in response to parental requests. Parents were enabled to access support which they felt was inaccessible before the course.

Clinical implications

Basing an intervention for parents of distressed adolescents in an educational frame may be more acceptable currently than using a psycho-educational frame.
