Stressed Teens is Celebrating its 12th year with Brand New and updated content. This reflects current program content and interventions based on research and a grant developed especially for Stanford University (Biegel G.M., Chang K., Garrett A., Edwards M. 2014).  This course now provides an additional 15 hours of content for 30 hours of learning.

Stressed Teens also offers complimentary Continuing Education Units (CEUs) upon completion of the course at no additional charge.

Gina Biegel has put together an intensive training for professionals interested in helping stressed adolescents find relief and clarity based on her direct experience supporting teens during this challenging time of life. By learning how to help adolescents now, we prepare them for the future they will create not only for them, but for all of us!
