Confident Teens Course – Term 2

Confident Teens is a series of weekly workshops, held after-school/evening, to equip teenagers with powerful life and leadership skills. We help them to build confidence, resilience, positive emotion and self-presentation skills, helping them to develop into healthy, emotionally intelligent adults.

Attendees will learn about, practise and develop:
- Emotional wellbeing techniques
- Mindfulness
- Emotions – understanding and managing core emotions
- Meditation
- Abdominal Breathing
- Gratitude
- Healthy sleep
- Self-empowerment techniques
- Body-brain feedback loop–triggering positive emotion and inner feelings of confidence, through body and voice
- Preventing and managing negative emotion like fear and anger–resetting the calm state
- Nonverbal behaviour
- First impressions count
- Self-presentation for success (e.g. job/university interviews, presenting, career, socially)
- Understanding other people
- Vocal power

The beginner’s course sets the foundations, teaching simple concepts grounded in science. In subsequent intermediate and advanced courses, we’ll build on and add concepts, with activities and exercises designed to develop attendees further.

The beginner’s course is open to all teens and is suitable for teens who are introverted, shy, or teens with anxieties, issues with confidence, etc. We provide an environment where they feel safe to learn and develop these life-changing skills.

In each session, as well as teaching the main topic, we practise short exercises in mindfulness, meditation and abdominal breathing, so that participants get accustomed to using these life-changing techniques.

Participants will be able to attend future courses, where they build on what they have learned, to enable them to further grow in confidence and develop into mature and well-rounded young adults.
