    29th National Christian Family Conference: Effective Parents Positive Teens

    Raising Emotionally Healthy Teenagers

    When: 20-21 July 2015 (Applications Close July 13, 2015)

    Venue: Fox Valley Community Centre, 183a Fox Valley Road, Wahroonga, NSW (on the grounds of the Sydney Adventist Hospital)

    Adolescence can be an exciting but challenging time for teens and their parents/care-givers! It demands new ways of relating to changing rules and divergent opinions. It can often be a time of turmoil, confusion and broken friendships. The counselling room can also be a challenging place for the adolescent and the therapist.

    The 29th National Christian Family Conference will focus on key issues facing teens and those who care for them. Australian specialists will present the latest research in the fields of parenting, adolescent mental health, and the digital age and cyberspace-safety, as well as sharing important strategies that might assist teens and their carers in negotiating these potentially difficult years.

    Announced by North NZ Coordinator on Feb 25 2015

    My name is Juliette and I'm a 20 year old student from California. I grew up in the SDA church and Academy (San Diego central SDA church and San Diego Academy). I’m currently taking time off from school to travel--I recently returned from a 3 month trip to South America and will be coming to New Zealand for the month of March. I'm flying into Auckland on March 3 and was wondering if there was anyone who would be able to help me out with housing. I’ll probably be in Auckland for several days to explore and adjust to the time change, so if there's anybody who might be able to help me out with a spare bed or even a couch, I would really appreciate it! Please feel free to contact me by email at
