Event Description

Making Sense of Adolescence
(Eight 2-hour sessions, 12 to 2pm,
(Sat. or Sun.), in Oct-Nov-Dec 2013)

Adolescence has been an ever growing stage of development, changing from a few years to nearly double its length today. Consequently, adolescence often seems rampant with difficulties and complications. Participants are presented with insights into the adolescent brain, the three changes that occur, adolescent rites of passage, and the two different tracks to adolescence. Topics include: peers orientation, when rebellion is healthy and when it is not, alternative paths to adulthood, the difference between relationship problems and behavioral problems, the role of internal conflict, and how to hold on without holding back.
