NEPS My Friends Youth (2 day Workshop)-POST PRIMARY

Course description


NEPS - My Friends Youth – 2 day Workshop - POST PRIMARY ONLY


My FRIENDS Youth is a group-based development program that gives participants the tools to cope with the new challenges and experiences that come with the 12 to 15 year old age group. Adolescence is a time of change and offers many new challenges such as higher study loads, peer pressure, friendship difficulties as well as physical development. This can be a stressful and difficult time for many adolescents but the My FRIENDS Youth Program arms its participants with positive coping skills and resilience to help get through these situations and more easily transition to more senior years.


The My FRIENDS Youth Program helps early-teens deal with these stressful situations by normalising the state of anxiety and teaching participants to regulate their emotions using the “Emotion Thermometer” concept. It also arms them with problem solving strategies and self-confidence making it easier for them to face challenges and tasks in all aspects of their lives. The My FRIENDS Youth program is evidence based and has been proven by research to decrease anxiety and depression.


Places are limited to 2 teachers per school.


There is no substitute cover available for this workshop.
