Reproducible Assessments, Exercises & Educational Handouts
One important task of teens is learning practical life skills, critical for personal and professional success. Research indicates that life skills intelligence is as important as a teen's intelligence quotient (IQ) and emotional intelligence. Teens depend on effective life skills every day. With these skills they create a successful quality of life as they grow their inner resources.
Effective practical life skills help teens take charge and manage their lives in an increasingly complex society. Life skills can help them manage change and work effectively with their environments, their peers and other adults. The purpose of this workbook is to help teens develop the critical life skills that will assist them in meeting the demands of everyday life in a safe, mature and responsible manner.
The most important reason life skills intelligence is of such high importance is that, unlike the knowledge measured by traditional IQ tests, life skills can be learned and refined so that one can lead a successful, satisfying and productive life. A person's life skills IQ is a composite of many other types of intelligence:
The Teen Practical Life Skills Workbook contains five separate sections to help participants learn more about themselves and the competencies they possess in many life skills areas.
Participants will learn about the importance of life skills in their daily lives. They will complete assessments and activities to keep them become better managers of life and to assist their development of greater life skills.
The sections of this book are:
By combining reflective assessment and journaling, participants will be exposed to a powerful method of verbalizing and writing to reflect on and solve problems. Participants will become more aware of the strength and areas for growth and improvements of their daily life skills.
