  1. assumptions?
    Hi Susan

    There may be more to the situation than you have let on, but if not, are you assuming that teenagers are less capable of social interaction than any other age group?

    My experience is that teenagers are no different to the rest of the human race…unless we treat them as a special case!

    There is a good exercise called The Minefield available as a downloadable resource at http://www.coach-and-courses.com, which would be perfectly suitable if the numbers are right

  2. Quick, fun, physical energiser
    If you are looking for a quick energiser, I have found the sitting down in a circle exercise good for teenage groups – it needs no equipment, just a bit of space.
    You need a good sized group, but basically just ask them to stand in a circle, which they must turn into a sitting circle, by sitting on the lap of the person next to them, and then to get up to standing position again. It requires a bit of team work, a bit of leadership, and doesn’t take long but certainly creates interaction as a fun physical energiser.

  3. Teenager team exercises
    A good sourse on these exercises is Listening to Young People in School, Youth Work and Counselling by
    Nick Luxmoore
    Paperback, ISBN: 9781853029097, 144pp, 2000, £14.99
    It has many useful exercises. If you would like to talk to me please get in touch on 07941287504 I work in with teachers an students as a visiting psychotherapist to schools.
