Positive Psychology and the Adolescent Brain

Helping teens to develop their strengths

Helping teens to develop their strengths and awareness of their positive attributes can create a basis for parents to re-connect lovingly with their child.

Knowing their own personal strengths helps people of all ages- including children and teenagers feel happier about themselves all-round. In addition   to a better self awareness,  a boosted self-esteem ultimately assists and encourages young adults to  achieve their goals.

Clarity of what their strengths are, and how they can be used makes it possible for teens to re-establish contact and take action towards improving their relationships.

If you are interested in the benefits of positive reinforcement you can use the worksheet below which is a useful tool for parents to use and in order to begin a discussion and as a result create a focus upon the positive traits of their child or adolescent.
