7 Habits for Highly Effective Teens
CURE Counseling provides training for today’s teens. For teens, life is not a playground, it’s a jungle. And, being the parent of a teenager isn’t any walk in the park, either. In his book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, author Sean Covey attempts to provide “a compass to help teens and their parents navigate the problems they encounter daily.”
Adolescence & Other Temporary Mental Disorders
CURE Counseling provides insights into the “mind of a teen” with the help of a DVD called “Adolescence & Other Temporary Mental Disorders”. Our trained teen specialists use the DVD for aiding parents and training teens.
Angry Teens & Frustrated Parents
Aggression among youth is at its highest level; it can include behaviors like not following instructions, whining, crying and teasing. At it’s most extreme, it can involve assault, rape, robbery, and murder.
Assertiveness Training suggests that there are essentially three different ways that people can relate to one another. They can be:
1) aggressive, 2) passive or 3) assertive. Most people come to assertiveness training already understanding what aggression and passivity mean, but they don’t understand assertiveness at all, at first.
Brown’s ADD/ADHD Assessment
From more than 25 years of clinical interviews and research with children, adolescents and adults who have ADD/ADHD, Dr. Brown has developed an expanded model to describe the complex cognitive functions impaired in ADD Syndrome. This model describes executive functions, the cognitive management system of the human brain.
Character Training for Teens
CURE Counseling offers several training options for Children and Teens. KiDZ ROCK & TEENS ROCK is a interactive group experience that provides “Kharacter Training,” Social Skills Training and other needed age appropriate skill sets.
Manners for Teens
Manner’s for KiDZ and Teens is a video series that is integrated with personal counseling. Children and Teens discuss key concepts and life skills that will aid them in the development of age appropriate behaviors.
Oppositional Defiant Disorder
Oppositional Defiant Disorder is described as an ongoing pattern of disobedient, hostile and defiant behavior toward authority figures which goes beyond the bounds of normal childhood behavior. People who have it may appear very stubborn.
Psycho-Educational Training involves teaching and training teens and bringing them to the point of embracing new skill sets that are being taught. Our goal at CURE Counseling & Assessment Training Centre is to add value to the life of our clients by making every effort to make sure they apply what they are learning. Thus the axiom, Teacher’s Teach and Learner’s Learn – A Teacher has not taught until the Learner Learns is a key concept embraced by the counselors at our Counseling Centre.
Social Skills Training for Teens
Social Skills Training is available in personal counseling settings and in group settings. Children and Teens are presented with new concepts of what “social skills” should look like. Concepts are taught, reinforced, applied and reviewed until most of the skills are demonstrated in the child’s/teen’s life.
TEENs ROCK is an interactive experience where teens learn about character, social skills and manners all in one setting over an 8 week period. Teens are placed in age appropriate groups and taught new skills to aid in their personal development. Fun, games and prizes are a part of this interactive experience. The theme is ‘friends learning together to develop totally warm character”.
