Quit Digging! A Lifeline of Hope for Troubled Teens Presentation Transcript

  • 1. A Lifeline Of Hope For Troubled Teens
    Quit Digging!
    A GSH Seminars Production
  • 2. Our teenage years are some of the most confusing and puzzling years of our lives. Often teens need help, even when they don’t think they do.
  • 3. Quit Digging! offers that help …
    and hope. This program can give you the tools you need to help your youth become the person you and they always knew they could be.
  • 4. Quit Digging! offers insight in the following areas:
    • Discovering the Real “You”
    • 5. How You Got To Be This Way
    • 6. Identifying Thinking Habits
    • 7. Breaking Free From Bondage
    • 8. Becoming Men of Honor and Women of Grace
  • Sanguine Choleric Melancholy Phlegmatic
    We begin in Discovering The Real “You,” by presenting four main personality types. Exercises presented will help youth learn to identify some of the characteristics of each personality type, as well as discover which basic personality type s/he falls into. They will learn that they are each uniquely created to be someone special. When they find out who they are, they can relax and just be that person, instead of struggling to be somebody they are not.
  • 9. How You Got To Be This Way explains the pathway to our behavior. From how knowledge is gained in the first place, to how our belief systems develop, to how it all affects our perception of the world around us, to how that perception affects our emotions and our actions … all will help youth begin to understand why they think, feel and do what they do. Understanding these concepts is the cornerstone of positive change.
    Exercises in this section will reveal some of the basic beliefs the youth has about him/herself, and youth will discover how those beliefs have affected their actions.
  • 10. But what happens if some of the knowledge and information we have learned is wrong, or not the truth? In It’s All In Your Mind we delve into the concept that some of what we have believed in the past may not be based in truth. Exercises will help youth to discover some of their thinking errors and help them realize that they need to stop and think before they act.
  • 11. Identifying Thinking Habits delves deeper into the concept of thinking errors. Here weintroduce the idea of “habits” (attitudes, thought processes) that we form through what it is that we believe.
    Exercises in Identifying Thinking Habits present teens with common, every-day situations they can relate to. Through these situations, teens can see how they would react and what decisions they would make if they were involved in similar situations.
  • 12. The theory of “choice for change” is introduced in Breaking Free From Bondage. Youth will learn how old attitudes, ideas, beliefs and patterns of thinking can be exchanged for truth, hope and new life. Negative issues can begin to be identified and exposed, released and overcome.
    Exercises in this chapter help youth understand the power of choice, and
    help them break free from the hold
    the past has had over them.
  • 13. Just as bad habits can be developed, so can they be overcome. And in their place, youth will begin to see that they can nurture good habits that will benefit them, their families, their friends, associates and society in general.
    Through exercises in this section, youth will begin to understand their value and worth, and they will begin to understand that there truly is purpose and meaning to their lives.

  • 14. Men of Honor
    Women of Grace
    Through the exercises in this section, youth will learn how to emphasize their strengths and decrease their weaknesses. They will create a plan for their future and determine what it will take to accomplish their goals. In addition, they will learn the value of accountability.
    Hope for a better, brighter future is now within their grasp!
