Description: If you work with teenagers, you undoubtedly notice higher levels of depression and anxiety and more kinds of destructive behaviors. You've probably also noticed it's getting more and more difficult for them to keep Christ at the center of their lives. This workshop will provide information, tools, resources, and inspiration for helping our teenagers not only survive, but even THRIVE in the midst of these difficult adolescent years. Youth ministers, youth workers, volunteers, teachers...anyone who works closely with teenagers will benefit from this workshop.
