Taming the Stress Monster (Goulburn NSW)
January 27, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm,
Taming the Stress Monster in Adolescence
(suitable for teens 14+ as well as their parents/carers)
Today’s world is full of the immediacy of a busy life and it is impacting on our children and adolescents. This seminar for people who support adolescents explores the what, the why and most importantly the how of calming our children and especially our rapidly transforming adolescents. The bumpy ride to adulthood can be challenging at times. Maggie explores stress and ways for adolescents to understand and help each other to navigate big ugly feelings, ‘ANT’ attacks (automatic negative thoughts), failure and disappointment. She also explores great ways to calm and relax that will help the adolescents you work or live with to study better, think better and take the high road rather than the low road on the journey to being an adult.
