Adolescence opportunity or vulnerability?
  • the adolescent brain goes through a period of
    increased plasticity and restructuring, providing
    a time of opportunity and vulnerability
  • neurological findings underscore the importance
    of nurture in determining adolescent outcomes,
    learning experiences govern the course of the
    synaptic pruning process.

Evaluation of Oxford Parents and Teen Pilot
(Ipsos Mori 2009)
  • Parents and young people had taken on board many
    of the messages being provided by the programme.
  • Many expressed that their family lives had
    improved and were putting the tools they learned
    into practice.
  • Young people were keen to highlight positive
    effect the programme had on their family life and
    could have on others too.

Comments from Parents and Teenagers
Were listening both ways…its still hard in
the house but if we have an issue we are
working on sitting down and listening to one
another Parent
I would recommend it to a friend because you
learn how to co-operate with your family YP
I think its a much better idea bringing the
kids, cos Ive been to ones where you dont bring
the kids and its a much better idea. Parent
When I would get angry and feel like punching
someone I can just punch a pillow instead. YP
15
Conclusions (Ipsos Mori 2009)
  • When taking all the evidence into consideration
    it is clear to see that the particular iteration
    of this pilot young people and parents together
    does encourage empathy and better communication
    between families. Feedback from participants and
    facilitators all point to the successful outcomes
    of the programme. In light of the evaluative
    commentary, it is clear that this format of the
    programme should be taken forward and rolled out
    in future

16
Future Developments
  • Further 5 pilots
  • Evaluated with weekly and final feedback, SDQs
    and WEMBS
  • Amendment of programme
  • Training for PGLs
  • Roll out 2010
  • Continued evaluation
