Dr Tony Humphreys - Understanding Teenagers Sometimes Wild Always Wise - Monday 3rd April, 7.30pm, tickets €10

Adolescence is about becoming adult. Depending on the teenager’s experiences in infancy and childhood, the teenage years can be a rollercoaster of emotional highs and lows or a relatively smooth ride into maturity. The level of maturity of the significant adults in teenagers’ lives – parents and teachers – is critical to how well teenagers manage the many challenges – physical, emotional, sexual, intellectual, behavioural, social, creative and spiritual – that come their way. Attention to what lies hidden behind teenager’s distressing responses is required for teenagers to begin to make progress towards mature adulthood. Parents and teachers need to understand that when young people are troubled and troubling they are not trying to make life difficult for parents, teachers and others; they are trying to communicate how difficult life is for them.

Themes covered during the seminar will be:

  • The wisdom of adolescence
  • Teenagers’ search for identity
  • Parents’/teachers’ defensive behaviours that threaten teenagers’ wellbeing
  • Helping teenagers who are troubled and troubling
  • Identifying teenagers who are suffering inner turmoil
  • Parental ‘letting go’ and teenagers’ ‘leave-taking’

Dr Humphreys is a parent-mentor and motivational speaker. He regularly writes about psychology and illness in the Irish Times and in the Irish Examiner, where he has contributed a psychology column for over ten years. Dr. Tony Humphreys is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Author and National and International Speaker The author of eleven self-help books translated into 15 languages and available in 28 countries that includes They notably include A Different Kind of Teacher, Self-esteem: the Key to your Child's Future (1995), The Power of "Negative" Thinking (1996) and Children Feeling Good (1998).
