Cognitive Resilience Training for Adolescents
Helping adolescents manage stress, trauma, anxiety, depression and addiction
Custom Designed Curriculum
CLC programs are custom designed to fit the need of every client. Each class incorporates a lesson in neuroscience, kinesthetic movement, and cognitive behavioral exercises. We provide adolescents with tools to address challenging issues that can lead to anger, anxiety, depression, despair, and self-harm.
Our curriculum walks youth through our three-step structure – Science, Exercise for the Brain and Extension of Self (SEE) – where youth learn to cope with stress through better impulse control, increased communication skills, less anger, healthier habits, improved sleep, increased self-appreciation, and addressing addictive behaviors.
CLC Courses Are Built From the Following Subjects
Pre & post evaluations are included with every CLC training. When possible, quantitative measures will be taken for data analysis contributing to ongoing research in the field of neuroscience.
CLC’s Cognitive Resilience Training offers evidence-based tools, skills, and information to help young individuals manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Our evidence-based, peer-reviewed curriculum and cognitive exercises provide practical practices for adolescents to better cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. This program gives youth empowering tools to identify and address trauma with more controlled responses to triggers.
