“I’m going to be a video game designer!” Helping Teens Prepare for the REAL Adult World: (11 - young adult)
Adolescence is a complicated time. Some students are willing learners while others appear resistant to helping themselves or others. What's a parent or professional to do? This course translates peer-reviewed published research on adolescent psychology, motivation, self-awareness, social anxiety, social learning challenges, independence, and more into hands-on strategies, clear frameworks, and concepts that we'll explore and discuss. By day's end, you'll have a larger toolkit to assist students in learning about their own executive functioning, sharpening their perspective taking, and developing their own personal public relations and self-management campaigns.
