Training Description

One of the most significant challenges for supporting caregivers of system involved youth is to effectively engage them in efforts which support the development of the prefrontal cortexes of their children to foster success in their academic and career related activities, relationships, and efforts to avoid using drugs and compulsive behavior to self-medicate. In this training, we will explore how to enhance our capacity to support caregivers of system involved youth through modeling/teaching rapport building, caregiver leadership by facilitation skills, and self-regulation strategies that empower caregivers to have effective, sensitive conversations with their children. We will also explore situational leader coaching points that can prepare us to foster caregivers' ability to effectively influence their children’s transformational behaviors that are sustainable and lead to healthy community engagement and improved outcomes, as well as strengthen their resilience and ability to heal from traumatic events. Practicing and sharing the methods outlined by this workshop will allow us to improve the practice of how we empower system-involved youth and families.
