Trauma Focused DBT Skills for Adolescents – Eboni Webb: Learn how to make traumatic teenagers develop and build a life worth living
Our children are witnessing a historic turning point in human history. The global pandemic and racial unrest have added a new layer of stress and trauma to the lives of multicultural and ethnically diverse young people all around the world. Even if you’re stumped on how to help these kids, you’re not alone. The course Trauma Focused DBT Skills for Adolescents by Eboni Webb will help young people cope with trauma and stress.
A traumatic experience is anything that puts our safety or the lives of others in jeopardy and causes us to fear for our own or others’ well-being. There will be severe emotional, psychological, and physical distress as a result. This will cause the person to be unable to function normally in daily life for a period of time. In the wake of an upsetting or frightening experience, teens are frequently troubled by their strong emotions. Despite the fact that these reactions usually subside as a result of the body’s natural healing and recovery process, parents and caregivers should be aware of the ways in which teenagers cope with stress and trauma so they can offer their support and assistance. In addition, local, national, and international tragedies, as well as trauma affecting their friends, can affect teenagers deeply. Your adolescent will react to trauma in a unique way compared to other age groups or adults. In comparison to teenagers, younger children are more reliant on their parents, while older children are more likely to look to their friends for support. Parents must be aware of how their children deal with stress if they are to be of any assistance to them.
