Ron Taffel on Creating Conditions for Connection

How do you create an atmosphere that your teen clients will value rather than resist?

According to Ron Taffel, the 1-2-3 combination is to be less guarded, more spontaneous, and stop worrying that being yourself—warts and all—will weaken your credibility.

Teens are looking for authenticity and when they find the real thing, they’ll engage.

Here’s how it works.

Dan Siegel on the Power of the Teenage Brain

Dan Siegel knows that nobody—especially an angst-filled teenager—likes being told what to do.

That’s why he takes a more roundabout approach to connect with younger clients. He claims the first thing you should ask is, “Would you like to know more about your brain?”

By taking the emphasis off of “talking about feelings” and placing it on science, Dan creates a space that can lead to action-oriented solutions and positive growth.

See how it’s done.
