"HOW'S IT GOING?" TOOL
This quirky drawing provides a great opportunity for young people to choose a character that represents how their life is feeling for them right now. Print a copy and look at it together. You might need to go first, sharing a bit about your life based on the character you choose. Then invite the teen to try - and be sure you listen intently, asking clarifying questions to make space for them to explore more about how they feel about the place they are at.
