Teen Rebellion is a normal part of adolescence. One of the major developmental tasks teens face is developing independence from their parents and becoming their 'own person'. Transitioning from a dependent child to an independent adult not only takes time, but also manifests itself in behavior patterns such as rebellion, defiance and ambivalence.
Rebellion takes many forms, positive and negative and teens learn that decisions they make for themselves have consequences. Teens will develop their own personal beliefs which will inevitably lead to some bad choices and mistakes. Hear teens not only talk about their own experiences with rebellion, but also discuss their attitudes to rebellion, their parents, school, society and their peers. Includes pointers by clinical psycholgist Dr. Deborah Cooper.
Subjects covered include:
• What is rebellion?
• Healthy vs. unhealthy rebellion
• Making choices between healthy & unhealthy displays of rebellion
