Teen Behavior in the Library: Managing This Developmental Stage (Webinar)

April 24, presented by Carrie Rogers-Whitehead

Teens are going through a lot developmentally: puberty, social comparison, familial and cultural pressures. Sometimes they take that transitional stress to your library. Managing behaviors and expectations, while making the library a welcoming place is a tough line to walk. But understanding the why of this teen behavior is a start.

Participants will learn about:

  • Puberty and biological change in teens
  • Cultural and societal pressures on teens
  • Online pressures on teens
  • De-escalation techniques
  • Tips for communicating with teens
  • Suggestions on policies on teen behavior in the library
