Positive Psychology For Teens and Tweens with Katie Hurley, LCSW

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Stress and pressure can trigger negative thought patterns in tweens and teens. Research shows that body image concerns are starting earlier than ever and that heavy social media use can trigger thoughts of self-doubt and symptoms of anxiety and depression when tweens and teens spend a lot of time comparing themselves to others. Negative thinking can snowball quickly. The good news is that tweens and teens can learn to tap into positive psychology to work through their intrusive thoughts and focus on their strengths, instead. This presentation helps parents and educators learn to spot the warning signs of negative thinking and assist tweens and teens in changing their mindsets by utilizing positive thinking skills rooted in Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
