Adolescence is considered a time of emotional turbulence. This is due to certain area of their brains that are still under construction. Part of the limbic system, the Amygdala is thought to connect sensory information to emotional responses. It’s development, along with hormonal changes, may give rise to newly intense experiences of rage, fear, aggression and such. As a result of these changes teenagers can feel like they’re on an emotional roller coaster ride without knowing why.
This new course, written by Ken, aims at helping adolescence understand their feelings and emotions such as anxiety and depression and learn how to express these emotions in healthy ways as opposed to internalising them. Other emotions such as fear, frustration, anxiety, embarrassment and feelings of depression can be the primary emotion and without this understanding and knowing how to vent these emotions in healthy ways, they can turn volatile
