Description:
With each new generation comes new challenges. Bullying, peer pressure, negative self-perception – the list goes on. According to the National Institute of Mental Health approximately 20% of teens between the ages of 13-18 have or will have a mental illness. As a parent or educator, we may be unsure how to help equip ourselves or our teen with the knowledge and skills needed for emotional and mental wellness. Using dice, ribbons, bubbles, yarn and a plethora of other modalities, these cutting edge activities presented in this workshop are kid tested and approved. Join in the fun as you learn dynamic techniques geared to teach you how to effectively teach interpersonal communication skills, decision making skills, as well as understand methods that are essential at addressing tough issues like bullying and suicide prevention. This authentic and powerful workshop demonstrates standards-based, hands on activities and lessons will not disappoint. Participants will walk away with activities they can use to discuss mental and social health concerns with youth.
