CONVERSATIONS WITH PRACTITIONERS
working with teenagers: more play, less advice
Teenagers today have a lot going on. They deal with everything from persistent test anxiety to bullying on Facebook and social media. Young people are leading the way in challenging the norms of sexuality and gender, yet they still have difficulty communicating with their parents and are worried about their future and the future of the planet. A recent study by the American Psychological Association found that teens from all backgrounds actually experience higher levels of stress than adults.
These are challenging issues for therapists, counselors and parents. The last thing they want to hear from adults is advice! Jennifer Bullock has been practicing social therapy with teens and families for over two decades. She has learned to play with all that teens bring to the therapy. She radically accepts where young people are, while inviting them to participate in creating their own development.
Come and hear how the practice of social therapy, a psychology of becoming, builds environments for and with young people in which they can grow and develop.
