2.1 RESILIENCE | “WHAT’S YOUR SUPERPOWER?”
Discover your strengths and how to use them for good not evil
Boost your students’ resilience by helping them uncover their unique strengths.
Young people are consistently told to use their strengths, but research shows they don’t even know what their strengths are! How can we help them feel strong when they are so consistently left feeling weak, unsure, and out of their depth?
This fun, engaging, and interactive presentation is a brief journey of self discovery.
It gives students an insight into what their strengths might be, and shows them how they can use these strengths more. They will come away feeling stronger, more confident, and more resilient.
2.2 EMOTIONS | “WHO AM I, ANYWAY?”
A head start in the lifelong search for identity
Adolescence is a difficult time as teens begin the awkward process of trying to discover who they really are.
Drawing on classic psychology experiments gone wrong, your students will be fascinated by stories about people just like them and the ways that they’ve navigated their personal search for identity. We’ll explore Disney, musicals, and personal stories from students themselves as they continue their self-discovery journey.
Students will discover that they can choose who they want to be in any moment.
It’s simultaneously strengthening, liberating and resilience-boosting.
2.3 INSIDE THE MIND | “WHY DO I KEEP DOING STUPID THINGS?”
Understanding your developing brain, and how to get the best out of it
Help high school students understand how to manage their growing brains so they can make smarter choices.
Teens have been taught that their brains are not quite fully functional. They know they’re still a little ‘underdone’ in the neuron department… but few of them know why.
This session teaches teenagers about the brain development they’re undergoing right now in a fun and engaging way.
