In this episode, Roy examines a growing trend among today’s youth to avoid the stress that results from awkwardness. As Roy explains, this phenomenon is not exclusive to teens who suffer from social anxiety. Roy offers details and examples from his work with teens and strategies parents and those who work with teens can use to challenge teens to properly engage and cope with awkwardness and stress.  Roy has established Today’s Teenager as a non-profit organization dedicated to covering the expenses of therapy sessions and other mental health services for teens and families that would otherwise be unable to afford them.
