Beyond the Power Struggle: Supporting Teens with Bonn Wade, LCSW

“Beyond the Power Struggle” is an intentional workshop that outlines insight into adolescent development, attachment and positive youth development theories. This interactional workshop offers parents a deeper dive around the competing needs that confront many adolescents in their second decade of life. We will explore the history of adolescence as well as the developmental, neurodevelopmental, and social factors that impact a young person’s ability as they transition successfully to adulthood. You will learn ways to:

  • Understand human development, neurodevelopment, and attachment theories and their impact on your teenager
  • Explore the stress model of crisis and ways to restore safety and reduce anxiety with your teenager
  • Discuss ways to provide inclusive and supportive approaches using examples
  • Demonstrate effective techniques for working with adolescents
  • Discuss how your personal beliefs shape encounters with your teen
