Simply Successful Program teaches teens healthy tools and strategies to regulate their emotions.
Adolescence has always been a challenging time, but it has become more and more stressful for today’s teens. Many struggle to meet the demands of academic and athletic performance, deal with changing family units, parental and societal expectations, social media, homework, bullying and pressure to be the best. To complicate their world, teens navigate without benefit of a fully developed brain. Their pre-frontal cortex, the part of the brain that helps us solve problems, does not fully mature until the mid 20’s.
To cope, many engage in unhealthy behaviors like tobacco, drugs or alcohol to help them escape.
Simply Successful Program teaches teens healthy, natural tools and strategies to turn off the stress response, keep them cool, calm and able to regulate their emotions.
