 Testimonials: The ExpertRating Online Understanding Adolescents Course has received overwhelming positive feedback and reviews from students around the world. Here are a few:
"Amazing instructor and amazing course. Sonya has been so helpful throughout this course and I just loved this course. The best course I have ever taken!"

"As a middle school teacher, I found this course very useful. If not for new information, to reinforce things that I learned long ago in college. I am so glad that courses like this are being offered for those of us who have full time jobs and not a lot of extra time to travel to a campus to take a course. I hope that there will be more courses offered as time goes on. I plan to take as many as possible."

"As a teacher switching from elementary to middle school in the fall, I signed up for this course as a review of adolescent psychology. I am so glad that I did. This course was a good review of the basics I studied back in 1983, but there was a wealth of new material based on research since then. The materials are clear and well-written. It was a very useful and fascinating course. I heartily recommend it to others."

"Congratulations, a great course."

"Even though I have grown children I found this course to be extremely helpful in understanding past adolescent behavior and how they have developed into the individuals they are now. It is a valuable learning tool that I will integrate in teaching students and has increased my tolerance and understanding."

"Even though I have worked with adolescents for over 23 years, have a degree in secondary counseling and have survived having two daughters go through this developmental "stage", this course taught me that there was still a lot to learn!- and made it enjoyable in the process. Thanks!"

"Excellent presentation of material. Great course!"

"Great information and very helpful for my present employment."

"I am really glad I took this course. After studying secondary education in college, I was amazed that a course like this was not required of all future teachers of adolescents. The psychological changes that these young adults go through really do impact their interaction and everyday emotions while in high school. It would help every teacher of young adults to know just what is going on inside their minds and bodies."

ExpertRating Online Understanding Adolescents Course Coverage (6 weeks program)  

Week One

Wednesday - Lesson 01

The first lesson will explain the term adolescent development and familiarize you with some terminology. This lesson will also provide you with an overview of the three main stages of adolescence to help you become familiar with the tasks and milestones inherent in each stage.

Friday - Lesson 02

Adolescence is a time of change. These changes occur on the outside as well as on the inside. This lesson is going to focus on some external changes, and one of the things it will look at is puberty, the impact it can have on the adolescent, as well as how these changes can affect how you treat an adolescent.

Week Two

Wednesday - Lesson 03

This lesson will start looking at some of the internal changes kids experience during adolescence. As children's bodies take huge leaps forward, so do their brains as they learn and discover new ways of thinking and reasoning. This is cognitive development, which means how someone thinks, and that'll be the focus for this lesson.

Friday - Lesson 04

The dreaded peer group. This lesson will take a close look at socialization, peers and peer groups, friends, intimacy, and social changes in your adolescent's behavior.

Week Three

Wednesday - Lesson 05-

One of the things that changes most during adolescence is a child's family relationships and how family members interact with each other. This lesson will take a look at some of those changes and the impact this may have on both the adolescent and the family.

Friday - Lesson 06

Emotional development is one of the internal changes that evolve during adolescence. This lesson will take a look at some aspects of emotions and their development, and the significance this may have for adolescent development.

Week Four

Wednesday - Lesson 07

This is the “Who Am I?” lesson. This lesson will explore how people think about themselves, how their identity develops, what might influence their identity, and their self-concept.

Friday - Lesson 08

This lesson is all about moral development and faith separate from religion. It will look at how the changes to the adolescent play a role in their moral development. You'll become familiar with the overall thoughts, ideas and processes that seem common to adolescent moral development.

Week Five

Wednesday - Lesson 09

This lesson is going to take a close look at stress, anxiety, frustration, and defense mechanisms. It will explore how these things affect all and how some of this is demonstrated during adolescence.

Friday - Lesson 10

This lesson will adopt a slightly different format. It will look at four separate things: nature versus nurture, temperament, personality, and resiliency. The main thread carried throughout this lesson is how a better understanding of oneself can help one to better understand others.

Week Six

Wednesday - Lesson 11

Similar to the last lesson, this lesson will look at a few more distinct topics. First it will review some of the adolescent needs that have been discussed prior to this lesson, and then this lesson will discuss chronic illness, gay and lesbian youth and the issues these individuals may be faced with, and finally a chapter highlighting parenting the adolescent.

Friday - Lesson 12

The last lesson is going to stray from the normal to the abnormal part of adolescent development. The focus of this lesson will be a brief overview of disorders or conditions that are consistently viewed within the adolescent population.
