Training Description

Many system-involved youth and transitional age youth struggle to make sense of their emotions and regulate them in an adaptive manner. Without this knowledge, it can hinder goals and aspirations youth have. This training will equip you with the knowledge and skills to effectively support system involved kids and teens in increasing their emotional regulation skills. Additionally, many system-involved youth struggle to regulate their emotions and can dwell on self-defeating thoughts. Mindfulness is a helpful skill to help those that support system involved youth be present and engaged with them as well as a great skill to teach youth to practice so they don’t get lost in their thoughts and emotions. Participants will learn tangible mindfulness skills to practice with system involved youth.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify at least 1 component of emotion regulation.

2. Acquire at least 1 strategy for teaching emotional regulation skills with system-involved youth

3. Explain mindfulness and acquire at least 2 strategies for teaching system-involved youth about mindfulness
