Teen Practical Life Skills

Facilitator Reproducible Self-Assessments, Exercises, & Educational Handouts

Research indicates that life skills intelligence is as important as a teen’s intelligence quotient (IQ) and emotional intelligence. One crucial task of teens is learning practical life skills, which are critical for personal and professional success. Teens depend on practical life skills every day. These skills create a thriving quality of life as they grow their inner resources.

Effective practical life skills help teens take charge and manage their lives in an increasingly complex society. Life skills can help them drive change and work effectively with their environments, peers, and other adults. This workbook aims to help teens develop critical life skills that will assist them in meeting the demands of everyday life in a safe, mature, and responsible manner.

The most crucial reason life skills intelligence is of such high importance is that, unlike the knowledge measured by traditional IQ tests, life skills can be learned and refined so that one can lead a successful, satisfying and productive life. A person’s life skills IQ is a composite of many other types of intelligence:

  • Physical Intelligence
  • Mental Intelligence
  • Job, Volunteer, and School Intelligence
  • Emotional Intelligence
  • Social Intelligence
  • Spiritual Intelligence

The Teen Practical Life Skills Workbook contains five separate sections to help participants learn more about themselves and the competencies they possess in many life skills areas.

Participants will learn about the importance of life skills in their daily lives. They will complete assessments and activities to keep them becoming better managers of life and to assist their development of more excellent life skills.

The sections of this book are:

  • Problem-solving scale helps teens understand how they attempt to solve problems and provides instruction to improve their problem-solving skills.
  • Money management style scale helps teens to identify their style in managing money and provides instruction for capable money management.
  • Time management skills scale helps teens identify how efficient they are at managing their time and provides instruction for better time management.
  • Self-awareness scale helps teens identify their level of self-awareness related to their emotions, self-confidence, and self-assessment.
  • Personal change scale helps teens identify the changes they are experiencing in their lives and provides instruction for managing change.

By combining reflective assessment and journaling, participants are exposed to a powerful method of verbalizing and writing to reflect on and solve problems. Participants will become more aware of the strength and areas for growth and improvements in their daily life skills.

This workbook is also available in PDF eBook format, making it simple to store on your computer or mobile device and to access with a PDF viewer. The PDF format allows you to easily print copies of the activities and worksheets during therapy and counseling sessions.
