Participants will learn how teens (middle and high school students) can change their mindset and their behavior in ways that support self-control, perseverance, and tenacity. The workshop will be hands on, interactive, and skill-based, allowing participants to walk away with actual strategies they can use with teens. These strategies are built upon the latest research emerging in the field, as well as my clinical experience. Living in a world of constant distractions, high stakes and pressure, and with parents who can often hover or snowplow, today’s teens often struggle to set and accomplish long-term goals and overcome obstacles. In addition, teens have a proclivity for risky behavior and are still developing the ability to control themselves. Thus, teens can uniquely benefit from developing these skills.
