Description

Helping Hurting Teens

Anxiety, depression, self injury, sexual orientation, suicidal ideation. These are just a few things ministers, catechists, teachers, parents and others involved in the lives of today’s teens face.

It can be daunting to help teens who are dealing with these issues. Many adults think “I’m not a psychologist…How can I help these teens?” While there are limits to what non mental health professionals can do, there is MUCH more you can do than you probably think. You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of these issues and with a clearer understanding of the critical role you can play in caring for today’s hurting teens.

Roy Petitfils is an internationally sought after speaker who uses humor, passion, clinical and life experience to help adults connect with teens and teens to know, understand and love themselves. He is a therapist at Pax Renewal Center in Lafayette, Louisiana. He holds a Masters in Mental Health and School Counseling from the University of Louisiana, Lafayette.
