Our workshops offer tweens and teens a safe and friendly environment to share their concerns. We collaborate with schools to offer well-being and resilience workshops. Topics include uncovering your self-talk and thinking errors and how to use the CBT model to rewrite your story, identifying emotions and how to regulate big feelings, growth mindset vs. fixed mindset and the power of optimism. We also explore what self-care and self-worth really mean and how to create more of both, skills in conflict resolution and how to set healthy boundaries. Most importantly, we introduce the concept of how to design your own identity by uncovering your values, strengths, interests and talents. Mindfulness and meditation practices are also woven into these workshops to teach teenagers powerful coping tools to deal with stress and anxiety.
Using interactive exercises and delving deeply into various teen topics, these precious hours together help demonstrate that although each teenager's story is unique, we all share the same fears, doubts and questions.
Teens leave with tools to help navigate through the challenges of growing up in this fast-paced world defined by selfies, social media, internet and reality TV. With values often influenced by external forces, it's important teens embrace their authentic self.
Fitting in and feeling "normal" are huge motivators, even though they strive for independence and how to discover their true self. The energy created in these workshops encourage teens to build trust, enhance empathy and support each other. Once they learn that they are not alone, it allows their free spirit and wild heart to shine.
We also offer additional female empowerment workshops that cover the following topics.
