Training Description

This training will teach a creative problem solving method, which is applicable to many situations, including working with system involved youth and others who support them. We will go from a poorly defined problem to a clear problem to a solution over the course of our training, so please bring in an idea you’d like to work on within your efforts to support system involved youth. In addition, we will practice some creative exercises that will help expand your divergent thinking skills which if applied in various ways can support improved outcomes for system involved youth.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

· Identify the six steps to creatively solve a problem;

· Acquire and apply at least 2 creative exercises to enhance divergent thinking; and

· Evaluate at least 2 creative solutions for relevance and applicability with system involved youth and families.

Meet Our Trainer

Talia Dashow has been creating all her life, and has been coaching since 2001 when a fellow job seeker told her she would coach him now. She did, and it was successful, but she didn’t call herself a coach until 2020 when she opened up her Creativity Club. At the Creativity Club people get to play and explore their way to increased flexibility, comfort with ambiguity, confidence, and problem solving. Talia speaks on creativity as well as procrastination and confidence building. For this training, Talia is melding her own creativity games with the Creative Problem Solving Process learned at CPSI, the conference put on by the Creative Education Foundation.

This course meets the qualifications for (2.75) BBS CE hours for LCSWs, LMFTs, LPCCs, and LEPs as required by the California Board of Behavioral Sciences & is provided by Fred Finch Youth Center, CAMFT Provider #045295.
