About the Event
Nola Kesia Brantley
This training will help those supporting at-risk system-involved youth understand the stages of change model and how to effectively apply the stages of change model in their work. In this training each stage of change will be broken-down including important tasks and goals to help move youth from one stage to the next. During this training we will follow a scenario with an at-risk system-involved youth to identify successful engagement strategies at each stage of change.
1. Participants will be able to identify and distinguish the 5 stages of change in the model.
2. Participants will be able to identify 2 indicators that a system involved youth is in the stage of pre-contemplation.
3. Participants will be able to identify at least 3 strategies to help move a system involved youth from the stage of pre-contemplation to the stage of contemplation.
