How to Make the Most of Your Teen Years
Siobhan Farrell MsC
In this multi-day class, students will learn ways they can make the most of their teenage years, how to find opportunities as well as manage challenges during this important time in their lives.
There so many opportunities available to teens today that were not available in the past, but there are also new challenges and changes happening at a very fast rate. Sometimes, challenges and stress may negatively affect teen's health, moods and behaviors. On the other hand, there are wonderful opportunities that can widen their world and help them grow. In this course, we will explore strategies that teens may use to successfully navigate through this important stage of their life. In...
Students will be better informed about the opportunities and pressures that affect teenagers, and how to move forward with a plan, by setting goals and using certain tools to help navigate this period in their lives.
I am trained in Life Skills and have a BA in Communication Studies. I have taught mindfulness and self-esteem, self-acceptance and communications to university and college students (e.g. Indigenous students who have experienced trauma and negative educational experiences), with correctional centre inmates and psychiatric patients. In addition. I currently teach a number of life skills courses on Outschool such as managing social anxiety, use of social media, self-esteem, mindfulness and meditation and effective communication. My teaching experience in other classes, discussions and my own knowledge gained from working in a variety of environments will prepare me for dealing with this topic in an effective and sensitive way.
There are no expectation or specific materials required for this class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
In my introduction, I will emphasize the fact that information in the class is meant to be general, and not include individual specific experiences of students. If students' do begin to share any personal or sensitive information, I will, without discounting or demeaning the student, repeat the earlier instructions and redirect back to the previous discussion. The goal is to validate students' feelings and perceptions without invading their privacy or upsetting the other students.
