“Teenager Dynamic” ® was created by psychologist Dr George Kaliaden back in 1994 as a comprehensive ( preventive / remedial) solution for teenage problems listed above. The intensive training and group counseling workshops have transformed many students to
happier, high achieving, well-adjusted youths.

Now in its 25 th year and 160 th workshop, we continue to achieve our training goals with 98% acceptance rating ( eager to recommend the program to friends) by participants. 70% of teenage participants rate the program as “excellent”. In our systematic program evaluation through 12 years, we have found 66% of participants reported “much improvement in skills like motivation, concentration, study skills, social skills etc. ( Reported in the book published by Palgrave Macmillan New York, 2015).

This is what professional psychology alone can offer to the discerning parents. Such results cannot be achieved by superfluous “showmanship” or super-aggressive marketing gimmicks of commercial establishments. It is professionalism that makes the difference. It takes a deep, diagnostic , psychological understanding of the problem situation and a combination of inter-disciplinary knowledge and various therapeutic skills and techniques like Cognitive Therapy, Dialectical Cognitive Therapy, Learning Theory, Behavior Modification Techniques, Gestalt Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Narrative Therapy , Poetry Therapy etc. Participants in

But when I got to know what was going on, believe me, its great, just too great. If I had a chance to attend this program before, I could have made my teenage life more enthusiastic, more colorful… It has been informative, interesting, self- motivating,… I really thank God and you, sir, and my parents for making this wonderful experience for me” Anly Antony (from Abu Dhabi) Medical Student in India.
