Work on teens profiled

The work of the Parenting and Family Support Centre’s Dr Kylie Burke and Dr Cassandra Dittman has been profiled in Campus Review, a publication which connects readers across Australian research institutions.

In an article for Campus Review, as well as in an audio interview available on the Campus Review website, Dr Burke talks about how effective parenting and close parent-adolescent relationships are important protective factors for children in adolescence.

“The role of parents and parenting in the teen years has often been ignored or downplayed in interventions aimed at supporting adolescents who are experiencing difficulties in their lives,” Dr Burke says.
