Do you want to understand yourself and your teen better? Then this video course is for you.

In this video course, you have the opportunity to hear the renowned psychologist Sheila Redfern from the Anna Freud Center talk about teenagers. She does this based on her brand new book: How do you hug a Cactus? Reflective Parenting with Teenagers in Mind.

Among other things, Sheila has developed her own Reflective Parenting model to support mentalizing parenting, which you can hear more about in the video course.

  • Insight into the importance of mentalizing oneself and one’s own history as parents.
  • Concrete strategies to improve communication and strengthen the bond with your teenager.
  • Knowledge of how the principles of Reflective Parenting and mentalizing help shape the relationship with your child into adulthood.
