What’s the Buzz with Teenagers? A universal social and emotional literacy resource, 1st Edition By Mark Le Messurier

Pre-teens and teenagers are faced with a continually changing and complex social world that not only involves face-to-face action, but also online and social media interaction. What’s the Buzz with Teenagers? offers a highly practical program designed to explicitly teach young people to get along and maintain healthy relationships with their friends, family and the broader community.

Embracing current thinking on ‘self-awareness and behavior transformation’ in adolescents, it uses highly interactive role plays, film-making, thinking exercises, quizzes, group discussions and confidence-building games to improve social skills and promote inclusion in a fun, effective and appealing way. Easy to implement in upper primary and middle schools, in healthcare settings and beyond, What’s the Buzz with Teenagers?:

*is a deeply structured resource to teach young people in the 12- to 15-year-old developmental range;
*offers a connecting approach to bring young people together to learn without the pressure of ‘getting social interaction right’ all the time;
*aims to normalise the anxieties, sensitivities and loneliness that many young people experience during adolescence by sharing thoughts and exploring this common ground;
*explicitly teaches how to ‘read’ the emotional needs of others, show empathy and build relationships; and
*uses a developmental model that ensures relevance and inclusion to young people with a broad range of backgrounds, abilities and challenges.

The program provides lessons that educators and health professionals can adapt to suit their individual circumstances and time frames, and creates a framework for a warm, engaging and interactive space in which learning is optimized.

The book is complemented by the website www.whatsthebuzz.net.au, which offers online downloadable resources and a further six lessons.
