Session 1

How physiological changes in the teenage brain provide both challenges and opportunities for adolescents and what we can do to better navigate these changes

Why we need to focus on value-driven behaviour over goal-directed behaviour.

Session 2

How thinking can both help and hinder us as we navigate challenges of adolescence such as engaging at school, managing friendships and interacting with our families.

How focussing on competence affects achievement and engagement at school, and how it impacts our thinking and mental health.

Session 3

An evidence-based strategy to manage emotional states such as anxiety, anger, sadness, jealousy, apathy, as well as how to overcome these experiences.

How the present moment allows us to take action, and how to effectively decide what those actions can be for a fulfilling and engaging life.

Who is your facilitator?

Hi, my name is Rosie. I am a psychologist, educator, coach and facilitator with a masters in learning and technology.

I have been working with parents, children, teens, adults and corporate learners over the past 10+ years helping them develop their mindset, personal strengths and resilience.  

I founded an organisation called “I Learn for Life’ developed on the premise that all individuals can use learning to develop their potential and capacity at whatever it is they wish to do. 

The approaches shared in this course are evidence-based and focus on helping develop mentally resilient individuals using brain-based research. 

I hope I can inspire you to unlock your potential through life-long learning too!

Registered Psychologist, Bachelor of Education, Bachelor of Arts, Masters of Learning Science & Technology, Assoc. MAPS

Where is the face-to-face component run?

Face-to-face sessions are run via Zoom. In-situ sessions can be run for groups when requested at a client location. 

What is the proof that this works? 

This course is developed on the evidence-based therapeutic approaches of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Solution Focussed Brief Therapy. 

Research on interventions using these approaches (CBT, ACT, and SFBT) have found positive effects.  

There are also references to the neuroplasticity of the brain, preference-based thinking and value-driven choices. 

What makes Rosie qualified to run this course?

She is a Registered Psychologist with over 10 years experience working with parents, children, adolescents and adult learners. Her qualifications include: BA, BEdu, MLST, assoc. MAPS. 

Facilitation, development and coaching are her critical skills. Operating within primary schools, high schools, corporate settings and private practice, she has developed experience and competence working with and facilitating sessions for a variety of client groups.

Apart from professional qualifications, she also has lived experience with mental health challenges (and unhelpful life-choices) that began during high-school. She draws upon both personal and professional experience in these sessions to help others learn. 

The cost is too much for me!

To put it in perspective, the content and application strategies covered in this program usually take around 8-10 one-on-one sessions with a Psychologist. You are gaining around $1500 worth of value for $365 (AUD). 

However, we know cost can be prohibitive for some, so feel free to join our facebook page for free tips, blogs and events via Facebook: I Learn for Life
