Facilitator Reproducible Activities for Groups and Individuals

Teens are bombarded with expectations from parents, teachers, peers, work supervisors, themselves, media messages, and society’s standards. They need to figure out when to try, or not try, to live up to someone’s expectations and decide how to handle unreasonable expectations while upholding their own passions and plans.

The Teens – Managing Life’s Expectations Workbook gives you the tools you need to work with teens as they manage all of the expectations thrown at them. The activities in this workbook help teens recognize, evaluate, and revise as needed expectations from others and themselves.

Each chapter focuses on specific skills that teens will learn to help them manage expectations including:
Decision making
Goal-setting and prioritizing
Strength from adversity

Each activity in the workbook has clear instructions for the facilitator and offers a variety of options including journal writing, role playing, group discussion opportunities, goal-setting, and free expression activities. All of the worksheets and handouts are fully reproducible. This workbook is spiral bound to facilitate making copies of the various activities and handouts.

The nine chapters included in the workbook are:
Care-Giver Expectations
Peer Expectations
Partner Expectations
School Expectations
Work/Volunteer Expectations
Media Expectations
Self-Development Expectations

This workbook is also available in PDF eBook format, making it simple to store on your computer or mobile device, and to access with a PDF viewer. The PDF format also allows you to easily print copies of the activities and worksheets during therapy and counseling sessions.
