Developed from the Evidence Based Nurturing Programs, It’s All About Being a Teen is a 99 lesson, competency based curriculum that empowers professionals with the tools to help teens sort out and master the complexities and challenges of adolescence.

It's All About Being a Teen was developed as a treatment program for adolescents who exhibit maladaptive, disturbed, and delinquent behaviors. The 99 lessons provide specialists in mental health, special education with training in emotional disturbance/behavior disorders, and in drug and alcohol abuse/addiction the opportunity to involve troubled teens in meaningful education designed to develop healthy and nurturing lifestyles.

A dynamic interactive curriculum designed to increase positive self-worth, personal empowerment, self-discipline, empathy, healthy attachments, and resilient-protective behaviors.

The Instructor’s Manual presents 99 easy to teach lessons. You decide what lessons to teach and when to teach them.
  • Each lesson lists the competencies the teens are to acquire. This helps the teens and the teacher/counselor stay on task and be accountable.
  • End of class short essay questions ensure the information has been learned.
  • If the information has not been learned or the competencies have not been acquired, the content is re-taught until competencies have been met.
  • Instructor’s Manual includes lesson handouts on CD. Handouts are given to teens during class as students create their own Handbook. Unlimited downloads are included in the price of the Instructor’s Manual.
  • Lessons can be taught in a group/class setting or one-to-one in an office/home setting.
  • Individual lessons can be selected to form education with a prevention or intervention focus.
An invaluable resource for middle-school and high-school teachers, for professionals working with high risk youth in residential and detention centers, and for therapists/counselors working one-to-one with teens.
