This workbook moves beyond life skills as we traditionally know it and steps outside of the box to get middle and high school youth optimized in life and overall well-being. As an integrated model and grounded in the rigorously researched interventions and theories of positive psychology, this workbook introduces these concepts to youth to optimize their well-being. The evidence based model of REBT (Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy) is introduced to increase rational living and to teach all youth that making smart choices, decreasing self-defeating behaviors and unhealthy negative emotions can be done with practice and application giving them the tools they require to not only be successful in adolescence but as young adults. The Nurtured Heart Approach is included as the epoxy that ties all the concepts together but most importantly builds flourishing relationships at home, school and in the community.
