Counselling Adolescents and their FamiliesDesignation: PACC 7013 / NXGN 7013
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 behavioural, emotional, and relational issues faced by 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.
