The Teen Timeline Chart

Building Rapport With Teens From The Start.

I've had sessions with teenagers in which I have laughed so hard, I nearly cried, and have also had sessions in which I questioned some of my more important life decisions. This is the joy and agony of working with teens as a therapist I suppose?!

I have worked with teens since I was a trainee in a local high school and most recently was the Clinical Director of an Adolescent Treatment Center, so I have clocked a few hours with this population and although I can't say for certain if this idea will help you, I know from experience it's usually a hit.

 

The timeline chart is an incredible tool to learn about your client's life experiences, from the traumatic and stressful, to the positive and successful.

What you'll get:

  • Explanatory video
  • PDF packed with information
  • Advanced Technique

Building Rapport With Teens: The Intake Activity 

The Teen Timeline Chart is an awesome creative way to engage a teen in a way that helps them express the most important events in their life. Consider it a creative trauma timeline- with post-it notes and more creativity. What I love about this activity is that it is so engaging, some teens will want to take over and SHOW you what they have gone through, others will be more reserved and be more content to watch you create it as they talk. Either way works, you're getting a detailed biography that will inform your conceptualization and treatment plan.

This can be used at any stage of treatment, but should not replace a thorough intake assessment. This is intended for use by certified mental health professionals or those under supervision by licensed mental health professionals. 

What People Are Saying:

Before downloading this product I went into my teen sessions mainly relying on my own intuition and "inner teen" to help me know where to begin and where to go. I felt anxiety and anticipation when working with teens because I'd never had any teen specific training. [Now that I've reviewed this course...]...I feel more excited and curious and feel confident in my intakes.
