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
