All Kinds of News for July 15, 2020
ViewPoint Center, an assessment center and mental health hospital for teens ages 12-17, recently released a new video in their “Whiteboard Wisdom” YouTube series featuring Dr. Jordan Rigby, Assessment Director at ViewPoint Center and Primary Therapist Jessica Walker. This video provides insight into ways teens and their families can build resiliency skills and manage stress in a healthier way.
“At Viewpoint Center, we empower families to develop a different perspective when it comes to honoring stressful emotions and help them work towards a sense of mastery and resilience,” says Dr. Jordan Rigby. “Adversity, discomfort, distress, and loss are all part of the human experience. But for teenagers, coming to terms with these experiences for the first time, it can feel earth-shattering and can completely strip away any strategies they’ve developed to cope. There are different aspects of resilience that can help us when the rain starts pouring because we know that it is going to. We have the capacity to build that umbrella out and protect ourselves from the rain.”

The Whiteboard Wisdom video series focuses on a variety of topics such as trauma responses in adolescents, resources for anxious families, and the mind-body connection.
