Some topics include: Navigating the Squalls (the phases of adolescence and how these may be expressed and anticipated), Venus & Mars (the similarities and the differing needs of boys and girls), Coming of Age (rethinking how to help the 12-14 year old prepare for a changing world), Threshold Issues (an overview of addictive tendencies and how to meet them in creative ways) and “But they are my friends!” (the peer group and defining the roles played within it and how can adults work with the peer group and not against it).
