Fundamentals and Tips to Help Youth Manage their Emotions

Slobodan Georgiev Emaww.com Emotions Matter Podcast Emotional Awareness Intelligence manage emotions


Q1-01:08: So, I know a little bit about you, I know that you’re studying psychology and you’ve got a focus on the youth. What else should I know about you? What else can you tell the listeners about your background and why you’re doing what you’re doing?

Q2-02:38Well, what gave you the interest or what made you want to focus on what you’re doing with the psychology of the youth, where did all that come from?

Q3-04:29: Absolutely. I think that’s really, really good and I understand what you’re saying. The power of touching others and helping others is always satisfying, there’s no greater gift or joy, and what you’re doing will allow you to do that throughout your career, which is great.
So, when you work with the youth, what’s the typical age range that you work with?

Q4-05:27: Let me ask you a question about emotions specifically. Is there something that you see people struggle with the most, or something that comes out the most in that group, or is it varying by age? Are the younger people more prone to one emotion than the older group or is just buried?

Q5-07:32: That makes sense. So, when you were talking about LOVE, an example that came to my mind was a child wanting a father around or maybe a parent that wasn’t around, is that a good example of that?

Q6-09:03: When you’re thinking about children or teenagers, what have you seen is the trigger for stress. What have you seen with children is a sign that stress is coming on, what may trigger that, and I have the same question for teenagers as well.

Q7-10:39: What are some of the methods, normal courses of actions that go about combating the stress these people are experiencing? Is there a one-size-fits-all type approach to that, or is it very different on every individual, how does that work?

Q8-12:44: I’m a big fan of something you’ve said, I’m not a believer in the one-size-fits-all approach for anything, I really like how you guys really look at what’s going on, who you’re dealing with, and that listening part is very important, it’s a great approach. The next thing I want to talk about is anxiety What’s been your experience that, do you see a lot of youth suffer from anxiety, as anxiety is closely linked to stress, what;s your take on that?

Q9-19:16: Staying on the topic of anxiety, I’m going to switch gears here a little bit. We actually have a question from one of our listeners. Scot from California, 26 years old, would like to know if people learn anxiety or it’s something that’s predisposition in them. Are they born with it or is it something that environment teaches them?

Q10-22:42Slobodan, I appreciate what you’ve just said because I’ve never thought of anxiety like that before. It can be terrible and great, depending on the circumstances. Let me ask you this, it’s a part two of the same question that just popped into my head. If a person is generally very anxious, is there something that they can do to minimize it or get it under control?

Q11-25:21: I’m going to ask you to share with us a bit of a personal story. Maybe a situation where you had an emotional situation to solve, or maybe a tough moment, give us an example of something you’ve dealt with, how you got through it and what would you advise others to follow your footsteps?

Q12-30:08I want to switch gears one more time, I know that you are graduating soon, right? So, after graduation, what’s next for you?
