TREK: A Middle School Transition Program
Starting a new phase in school can be stressful. Not knowing what to expect can bring up a lot of questions for your middle schooler, such as:
- How will I handle the pressure of the increased emphasis on homework and grades?
- Will it be hard to make friends?
- What if I lose my current friends?
- How do I deal with social media challenges?
TREK is a fun and engaging workshop that will help your middle schooler address these challenges and create strategies to make this transition less stressful.
TREK is offered on two nights. September 8 provides an emphasis on a middle school girls' experience, and September 15 provides an emphasis on a middle school boys' experience. Each program runs from 5 to 9 p.m.
Transitions into Adulthood
Navigate Adolescence was pleased to bring best-selling author Dr. Lisa Damour to Downers Grove on May 1. With both humor and candor, she pulled back the curtain on the teenage years and showed why our teens' erratic and confusing behavior is actually healthy, necessary, and natural. Dr. Damour has drawn on decades of experience and the latest research to reveal the seven developmental stages that turn adolescents into thriving adults.
