Resiliently You Teens
Teens face so much more pressure today than they ever did in the past. There’s pressure to be involved in extra-curricular activities, to get into a “good” college/university, to have the “perfect” body, and to be constantly connected to technology and social media and available to everyone all of the time. On top of that, the pandemic created so many changes and led to so many losses for teens, that we are seeing an increased level of anxiety in this age group.
Even though anxiety is common, it does have to be managed or it can spiral into something bigger than they can control. That’s why Resiliently You Teens was designed to help them learn to live with anxiety without letting it take control and get in the way of their everyday life.
Resiliently You Teens is a 6-week program suitable for children 11-16 years. Each week your teen will make a coping tool or learn a calming strategy to use in their day-day life in order to manage their anxiety.
Week 1: Define anxiety, understand our fight or flight response, identify anxiety patterns, and discuss prevention and intervention for anxiety
Week 2: Learning to use our bodies to reduce anxiety through yoga, movement, healthy eating and breath work
Week 3: Learning to use our minds to reduce anxiety through journaling, grounding techniques, and meditation
Week 4: Learning habits and management skills such as time management, thought flipping, problem solving and simple cognitive behaviour therapy techniques to reduce anxiety
Week 5: Using positive affirmations and gratitude to reduce anxiety
Week 6: Learning to separate yourself from other’s problems and balance social media use
Confidently You Teens
Being a teenager is often a time when self-esteem is challenged. Teens often doubt themselves and worry about their self-worth, sometimes leading to self-destructive behaviours.
Confidently You Teens is a 6-week program that engages teens in self-exploration of the ways both internal and external factors influence their self-perception and well-being. Your teen will learn safe and positive techniques to change their thoughts and actions to allow for a more positive sense of self, ultimately helping them to have more successful relationships with themselves and others. Each week your teen will learn practical and empowering tools to explore their identity and build confidence. Teens will also learn to become critical consumers of media and social media, discover their passions, navigate peer pressure, and become more compassionate toward themselves and others.
