Preserving Emotional Health in Adolescence
a Saturday Seminar by Tamara Strijack

Adolescence is a unique time – no longer a child, but not yet an adult. And navigating this time seems to be more difficult these days – with the impact of social media, bullying, depression, higher rates of suicide, and increasing diagnoses of disorders. Making sense of what is going on during this time can shed light on what is needed to restore emotional health. How do we make room for all that is stirred within them on this journey from childhood to adulthood and compensate for stuckness, especially when we can often feel stuck ourselves in dealing with them? How do we make it safe to process their inner world and the often wounding world they find themselves in?

In this seminar, we will explore the developmental changes, the emotional drives and the body’s natural defense system that is designed to protect from too much wounding, as well as the natural ways through to emotional health.  And most importantly, we will look at our vital role as caring adults in our adolescents’ lives – whether coming as an educator, counsellor, parent or mentor.
