Good relationships with adults and peers help teens navigate mental and emotional challenges more effectively than any other intervention. Friendships gone sour can snuff out the light of enthusiasm in an adolescent. How do we help our teens learn the art and science of friendship? In this Conscious Classroom episode, Amy Edelstein will map the cartography of friendship. She will guide you in mindful awareness practices you can use with your students to help them learn how to be better friends to themselves and to others. You will also learn some of the Inner Strength tools that we use in our classrooms to help students identify those qualities that are important in a friendship and strengthen those traits in themselves.
