Working With Teens: What Are They Thinking?
Presented by Sharyn Chesser, BSN, RN, MEd


Work with teens? Tough topics, such as sex education, childbirth, breastfeeding, and parenting, are easy for teens to tune out, and keeping them engaged can be hard. One way to overcome this challenge is by having a better understanding of the adolescent mind. Once you appreciate how this population learns, teaching them will be even more effective!

In this one-hour webinar, you will learn:

  • Characteristics of the adolescent brain
  • How teens process information
  • Best practices for working with pregnant and parenting adolescents
  • How to make your classes and programs more effective for the adolescent clients
