– Helping Teenagers Talk about their Feelings
At this challenging developmental stage, when teenagers are finding things difficult, this book can really help. It is full of tools and techniques of what to say and how to be, enabling teenagers to move from unhappiness, poor functioning or learning blocks, to a place of self-awareness, self-esteem and the ability to thrive.
The first part of the book offers a key assessment tool, namely ‘The Teenager Well-Being Profile’. This is designed for people to easily assess just how well the teenager is doing in their life emotionally and relationally. If the teenager is messing up in some areas, the Well-Being Profile will show clearly which life skill he or she has not yet mastered.
The accompanying, empowering worksheets address key feelings, issues and concerns common to teenagers. The worksheets enable adults to be with the teenager in a confident, non-embarrassing and effective way so that the conversation flows. This book provides a real opportunity for transformational conversations that will really make a difference.
