Inter-Acting works to build confidence through connections. Our workshops were created by a psychotherapist and lead by MTVs Ryan Kelley. Our 50 min virtual workshops help teens build social connections, strengthen their communication skills, interact meaningfully with peers and reduce general and/or social anxiety. Teens need a space to develop their social confidence and feel successful with their interactions.
Experiential learning — PRACTICE AND PREPARATION — is key to their success Teen anxiety is real... but it doesn't have to be a barrier to meaningful connections! MTV's Ryan Kelley gets participants engaged through quirky discussion prompts, cooperative exercises, and lots of humor. There is a “theme” for every session, i.e., “how to handle rejection,” or “non-verbal communication,” but the program is designed to be adaptive and dynamic, and we don’t stick to a script. At Inter-Acting, we help middle and high school students who are struggling with general and social anxiety build the skills they need to feel confident in everyday life. Together we work through “real-life” scenarios, and we do it in a fun and engaging way that supports their progress.
