Training Description

Conflict is a normal part of children’s lives. Learning to use conflict resolution skills takes practice and modeling from adults. With guidance children, can begin gradually develop their abilities to resolve conflicts independently. This experiential workshop explores the skills most appropriate for system involved youth to use in conflict resolution and takes a deep dive into how we can model these skills for system involved youth and practice communicating with youth to support learning and conflict resolution skills. This engaging and stimulating training puts the theory of conflict resolution into practice, giving participants an opportunity to explore and understand better their own emotions and try out different ways of building rapport and connecting with foster and/or system involved youth who may live in out of home care. Participants will leave with knowledge and skills that will make them more effective in supporting the development of conflict resolution in system involved regardless of their role.
