I believe one of your goals in life should be to continually learn how to resolve the problems you run into. Obviously some problems do not go away and cannot be easily resolved. With these, you must learn understanding and coping skills to manage them instead of allowing these problems to manage you. This is what counseling is all about.

Since it is our unconscious, spirit part that we are seeking to heal, we must access this part through a variety of right-brain techniques that communicate with the unconscious. The goal of this therapy is to get the defense system out of the way so that we begin to operate out of our true sense of self, begin to create boundaries, make choices truly reflective of our own wants and needs. We then find that we no longer need to rely upon the destructive coping techniques previously used to protect us from the awareness that we are not integrated.

Peer Relationships in Kirkwood

Teens want to be with people their own age - their peers. During their adolescent years, teens and tweens often spend more time with their peers than with their parents. Through their peer relationships, they can be both connected and independent, as they grow away from their parents' images of them and develop identities of their own. Peers provide a place for accepting the feelings, thoughts and actions that come with the search for identity.

Positive Peer Pressure in Kirkwood

The ability to develop healthy friendships and peer relationships depends on a teen's self-identity and self-esteem. Peer pressure can encourage your teen's energy and motivate your teen to conform to healthy behavior. Peers can act as positive role models and demonstrate constructive social behavior. Peers listen to, accept, and understand the frustrations, challenges, and concerns of being a tween or teenager.

Negative Peer Pressure in Kirkwood

The need for acceptance, approval, and belonging can lead some teens or tweens to engage in risky behavior in order to fit in with a group-contrasting values they may otherwise reject. In such situations, peer pressure can impair judgment and enable risk-taking behavior, drawing a teen away from the family and positive influences. Some teens harbor secret lives --including those who appear to be well-behaved, high-achieving teens when they are with adults -and engage in negative behavior when with their peers.
