Counselling Adolescents and their Families

Designation: PACC 4013 / YYAM 4013

Addictions, eating disorders, self-injury, sexual choices, media saturation, sexual abuse, family breakdown, anxiety, depression, and suicide – these are the dark realities that mark the lives of many young people today. This class is designed to address a number of these contemporary behavioral, emotional, and relational issues faced by new millennium adolescents. It is meant to prepare the student for increased ministry effectiveness through a deeper awareness of underlying issues affecting adolescents and their families today. Students will develop a greater level of freedom in addressing and discussing these issues with both adolescents themselves and adults who intersect with the adolescent world.
