I Hate My Teen: Managing Taboo Feelings with NLP Coaching Techniques

Beth Dawson

2024 Conference

This presentation explores the challenges faced by parents or caregivers when dealing with negative emotions towards their teenage children.

These feelings are often a source of shame for parents and/or teachers dealing with older children but as we'll see during this presentation, embracing the shadows can help us step out in to the light!

This session focuses on using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) coaching techniques to address and manage these taboo feelings effectively.  By understanding and applying NLP principles, parents and teachers can develop healthier relationships with their teens, fostering understanding, empathy, and effective communication.

Using clear examples, Beth Dawson (who is a parent and teacher of teenagers herself and holds a PhD in education sciences), will help you acknowledge and recognise the complex emotions that arise with teenagers and why these happen.

You will then be given practical NLP tools and techniques to navigate these challenging emotions and leave the session feeling uplifted and positive and more accepting of your negative emotions.

Key Points Covered:

  • Understanding Taboo Feelings

  • Introduction to NLP Coaching Techniques for taboo feelings

  • Identifying Limiting Beliefs and Patterns

  • Reframing and Perspective Shift

  • Effective Communication Strategies

The presentation concludes by summarising the key takeaways and emphasising the benefits of applying NLP coaching techniques to manage taboo feelings towards teens.
