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.

Come join interviewer and dancer Pamela Wise, for an interesting discussion with Executive Director of Windhover of Rockport, MA, Lisa Hahn. In 1976, Herbert and Ina Hahn purchased the last farm in Pigeon Cove, a small village by the sea some two miles north of the town of Rockport, MA. The farm, on 4.5 acres of land, included a main house, cow barn, stables and various outbuildings and pasture land. In less than a year, Herb Hahn single-handedly transformed the farm into Windhover. Pamela and Lisa will take us on a journey through the evolution of Windhover from camp to performing arts center.
