Does your teen struggle to make positive connections and lacks self-confidence?

Adolescence is a time in which young people are craving peer connections.  Connectedness in youth is associated with health and wellbeing, with the effects continuing into adulthood (Steiner et al., 2019).  In society today it is getting harder for young people to make positive, healthy connections.  A significant proportion of young people also struggle with low self-confidence and self-limiting beliefs.  Developing skills in these areas helps improve positive attitude, problem-solving, coping under stress, health, wellbeing, and leadership skills.   

Throughout the month of November, a small, face-to-face wellbeing group will be offered aimed at equipping youth with the skills to encourage positive, healthy connections with peers and boost self-confidence.  Example topics covered include:

  • What are positive, healthy connections and how to build them?
  • Connecting with others online versus in person and how to know if it is authentic.
  • How to improve self-confidence from the inside out. 
  • Happiness and self-acceptance skills.

Groups will run weekly on Monday afternoons from 4pm – 5:30pm over the duration of 5 weeks. Numbers are limited for this offering.  Can’t make it this time? You can choose to subscribe to be updated about future offerings.

This program is suited to adolescents aged 13-17 years and based on positive psychology strategies.  The program is non-clinical in nature and not targeted for mental health intervention.  This offering will be run in person at the Dalby office.
