Teens usually connect the word relationships only with other people. The activities in Teens – Relationships with People, Places and Things, will help teens explore their relationships in all facets of their lives and they will discover which are healthy and which ones need change. Teens will learn skills they will use throughout their lifetime to build and maintain healthy relationships.
This workbook covers the following teen connections:
1. Family /People at Home – primary experiences that affect teens’ views of how people live their lives.
2. Peers – possibly the most influential people during adolescence.
3. Romantic Partners – first love that awakens and intensifies emotions.
4. Places – physical locations, their memories and impact.
5. Tangible Things – money and materialism, and their degree of importance in teens’ lives.
6. Intangible Things – ideas, traits and influences that contribute to character.
7. Self – a powerful relationship that affects all other alliances.
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can present with a number of symptoms, including anxiety, depression, flashbacks, and trouble sleeping. If your partner has PTSD, you may want to help, but find yourself at a loss.
The simple truth is that PTSD can be extremely debilitating-not just for the person who has experienced trauma first-hand, but for their partners as well. And while there are many books written for those suffering from PTSD, there are few written for the people who love them. In Loving Someone with PTSD, Aphrodite Matsakis, presents concrete skills and strategies for the partners of those with PTSD.

Transitioning from the teen years into adulthood can be very exciting, yet scary; and it always includes “growing pains”. Teens who tire of adult advice listen to peers and messages from icons of popular culture. Some teens submit blindly to authority; some respect it; others rebel. Ideally teens will be receptive to wisdom but not controlled by commands; able to discern positive from negative peer pressure and media messages; and capable of monitoring and motivating themselves.Teens – It’s Time to Grow Up helps teens learn, develop, mature and self-actualize with games, mock videos (skits or role plays for which teens prepare a possible video presentation), interviews, team activities, drawing, journaling, debates, discussion and other modes. These activities guide teens in many directions.
Approximately 10% of men and women in the United States have experienced physical aggression from their partners within the last year. Most, if not all, of these instances were preceded by psychological aggression. Yet despite the integral relationship between psychological and physical aggression, the two topics are often researched and treated separately.
