How is your teen socially and emotionally impacted by their cyber life? Psychologists and counselors warn of the negative results social media, gaming, and other online sources have on our teens and 20-somethings. In this workshop, we will dive into the social and emotional effects of social media and what to look for. You will receive practical tools to help your teen be the authentic and emotionally healthy person you hope them to be.
Navigating Grief: How to Live Through It & Support It
For the Griever:
It’s okay to not be okay. Too often after experiencing the greatest pain of our lives we are expected to get right back into everyday life, perform on tests, have a good attitude, and score the winning point. In this workshop, I will share my personal experience of “grieving in all the wrong ways” to help you avoid some common pitfalls so you can grow through your pain and come out the other side different, but whole.
For the Supporter:
“Kids are resilient” adults like to say. But teens often push down their difficult emotions only to have them surface later in self-destructive ways. Teens need the tools to face their feelings, walk through them, and build up their emotional resilience. In this workshop, we will discuss how to help the young person in your life deal with loss, pain, grief, and change.
