The Key: Why I wrote this book on Emotional Intelligence for Teenagers.
The Key Unlocked: What’s in the Curriculum?
The Key: What teenagers think.
The Key is a guidebook being taught as a full school-term curriculum or a short course in schools and community groups.
I absolutely love teaching this course myself and seeing all of those ‘light bulb’ moments flash through my student’s eyes.
In 2019 I will launch its second edition that can be read by teenagers or taught and used as a reference tool by teachers, counsellors and parents.
Ihave taught it as a 10-week program in 2017 and 2018 at Bialik College, the top school in Victoria Australia to positive feedback from students, parents and teachers. In 2019 I will be taking THE KEY to Uganda to run a short course for teens and their parents. To hear what past students have said of their experience, please watch ‘THE KEY, What Teenagers Think’ video below.
Currently THE KEY needs to be guided from a professional. This was deliberate as the book covers a large range of important issues under the umbrella of emotional intelligence. Each section includes definitions, explanations and ‘things you can do’. To hear about the contents of THE KEY, see ‘THE KEY UNLOCKED’ video below. THE KEY includes exercises, writing therapy, discussions, youtube videos and homework.
In 2019 I will launch its second edition: ‘THE KEY; A Social Emotional Toolkit for Teens.’
I absolutely love teaching this course myself and seeing all of those ‘light bulb’ moments flash through my student’s eyes BUT if I want to get this book further out in to the world – to reach every teenager, parent, teacher and school counsellor then I need to create some changes to make the book self-standing. So in 2019 my aim is to edit the current copy and produce editionTHE KEY #2 which will be called: THE KEY, A SOCIAL EMOTIONAL TOOLKIT FOR TEENS (coming in 2019). This edition will include all the discussions I verbally hold in class, the conclusions we have reached together, links to online short courses to deepen their understanding on certain topics (such as negative thought patterns) and access to me as a counsellor. I will of course continue to teach THE KEY myself also (and can be hired to do so) and train teachers as well.
Please get in touch if you or your teen would like to book an online counselling session or if you want to chat further about THE KEY or THE KEY, A SOCIAL EMOTIONAL TOOLKIT FOR TEENS.
