Teens in the Wild (4 Parts)

Synopsis
A group of Irish teenage boys with behavioural issues attend a 21 day activity and therapy programme in rural Connemara, Galway. Clinical Psychologist David Coleman presents this series of 4 55-minute programmes in which he aims to forge better lines of communications between the boys and their parents. Activities include sport and team building games, which are all designed to challenge the boys both physically and mentally and raise their self-esteem,a key to improving their behaviour. Coleman works to address the real issues that lie at the route of their bad behaviour, using one-to-one sessions with the teens to break down barriers. After three weeks on the activity and therapy programme, the boys and their parents talk about what they have learned from the course.
