How to Overcome the Pressures of the Teenage Years: Helping Hurting and Stressed Teens
October 30: 9:00-10:30 a.m., Weber Collaboratory,
Julie Davies, Counselor/Speaker, The Caring Center

If you are a parent, youth pastor, or adult trying to help a hurting or stressed out teenager, you are not alone. Depression, anxiety, bullying, perfectionism, and other pressures are epidemic among teens and college students in this generation. Jesus has great compassion for hurting teens and for parents that feel scared and helpless watching their teens suffering with overwhelming pressure.  This free seminar will help parents know how to recognize when their child is believing any negative thoughts or lies from the enemy, how to replace lies with the truth of God’s Word, and what to do to help. Counselor Julie Davis will answer questions and connect concerned parents and adults with practical resources that can help bring healing and hope to their hurting or stressed-out teenager.
