A Workshop on Positive Empowered Parenting of Teen (PEP-Teens)

For parents and caregivers of

teens 13 years old and above

 

 

The Pep-Teens Workshop Approach…….

 

One of the greatest joys in life is becoming a parent. And yet, it can also be one of the most challenging roles that parents are ever faced with. In these high-stressed times and surrounding complex environment, the demands and responsibilities of parenting seem to even be harder to fulfill.

 

Is there a better way to raise our teens?

 

CEFAM presents its PEP-TEENS WORKSHOP as an alternative approach to effective parenting. In this workshop, parents and other caregivers learn how to create more satisfying and productive relationships in the family. The program teaches specific and practical skills that parents need and will use in their daily interaction with their teens. After the workshop, parents need and will use in their daily interaction with their teens. After the workshop, parents may begin to feel more confident and capable to fulfill their roles as fathers and mothers. And, as they try out their new skills at home, they will hopefully be able to recapture and continue to enjoy this significant role which every parent truly values.

 

Topics…

 

Talk 1: Building A Positive Relationship With Your Teen

 

Parents are often times baffled with their teen. Years back, these parents can probably claim to have had a relatively smooth parent-child relationship. But now that their child is a teen-ager, things seem to have changed. What makes your teen different? What makes him behave the way he does? What are his present concerns? Part I of this module presents an overview of adolescent development. Knowing this will enable parents to understand their teen better and be more sensitive to his basic needs at this stage in his life.

Talk 2: Communicating Effectively With Your Teen

 

Do you want to build friendship and intimacy with your teen? Effective communication is a basic ingredient in developing a good relationship between parent and teen. Do you want to be close to him? At the same time, do you want your child to understand you? These are some of the vital questions that will be answered in this module. Important parenting skills such as reflective listening, I-message, and problem-solving will be thoroughly discussed in this workshop.

 

Talk 3: How To Improve Your Child’s Teen’s-Esteem

 

Every parent wants his teen to grow up capable, confident, and able to achieve his full potential. How de we help him develop these qualities? This module will teach parents practical ways of helping their teen build his self-worth which is essential to a healthy personality. Through lectures and activities, parents will find out if they are nurturing or blocking the full development of their teen’s self-esteem. Concrete ways to rebuild a child’s low self-esteem will also be discussed.

 

Talk 4: Positive Ways to Discipline Your Teen

 

Do you have difficulties in disciplining your teen? However, in reality, effective discipline is one of the best ways for the teen to develop responsibility and decision-making skills. In this module, parents will learn practical ways of using positive discipline. With these suggestions, parents will discover that discipline need not cause unnecessary stress on both parent and teen.

 

Special topics that parents are usually concerned with will also be briefly discussed in this module: sibling rivalry, developing social skills, schoolwork, boy-gril relationships, peer pressure, SDA (smoking, drugs, alcohol).

Professional Diploma in Family Ministries: A One-Year Non-Degree Program

OBJECTIVE AND DESCRIPTION

The Center for family Ministries (CEFAM) at the Loyola School of Theology, Ateneo de Manila University, offers a Professional Diploma in Family Ministries, a one-year, non-degree program.The program is designed for persons engaged or to be engaged in the pastoral care of couples and families, such as lay-workers and coordinators of family life apostolates, seminarians, Priests, Ministers, and Religious Brothers and Sisters.

There are two major components to the program: COUNSELING (curative dimensions) and SPIRITUALITY (growth dimension). A wholistic, psycho-spiritual approach characterizes the program, utilizing a content-and-process methodology as its means.

The counseling component of the program will include a study of the psychodynamics and relevant socio-cultural factors, and a practicum training in skills necessary for a basic counseling ministry with couples and families.

The spirituality component of the program will include both a study of the scriptural-moral-doctrinal underpinnings of Christian family life and a graduated, integrated series of growth programs in family spirituality.

The total program aims to train persons in building up the Filipino family as a “domestic Church”, a community of love, justice, freedom and peace, both within the home and in its social role and responsibility to the nation and to the world. The thrust of “service of the faith and the promotion of justice” will permeate the overall program.

REQUIREMENTS:

1. A college degree or its equivalent. The major courses of the program are on the graduate school level.

2. Transcript of record from the college or university attended, showing average or above-average grades for the overall program of studies undertaken.

3. A filled-in application form, accompanied by three letters of recommendation, one from the Superior or supervisor of the applicant, and two from among his/her associates.

4. The course offerings will be held in the afternoons and evenings. The spirituality growth programs and other elective seminars will be held on some staggered week-ends. Counseling practicum work will be done in consultation with the counseling supervisor.
