Activities for Adolescents: Skills to Promote Rapport Building and Coping (2017)

A combination of a physical transformation in the brain, peer comparison, and searching for identity makes adolescence a particularly challenging time in life.  Further, teenagers generally experience an increase in stressors and a decreased ability to cope.  It is often difficult to know how to connect with teens, providing enough distance to allow for independence while offering support in a challenging developmental stage.  This webinar will offer a better understanding of teenagers from a psychological perspective.  Further, participants will gain familiarity with therapeutic activities to connect with this particular population and promote positive coping.     

After this webinar, participants will have:

  • increased knowledge of adolescents from a psychological perspective
  • a familiarity with therapeutic activities for adolescents focused on rapport building, feelings exploration, and improving coping skills
  • had an opportunity to review case studies with applied therapeutic activities
