Training Description

One of the most significant challenges for those supporting system involved youth is to effectively engage them to break free of negative self-talk and doubt since this is required to be successful in academic and career related activities, to build networks of support, and to avoid using drugs and compulsive behavior to self-medicate. In this training, we will explore how to enhance our capacity to support system involved youth by exploring Nonverbal Rapport Building and Advance Motivational Interviewing Techniques. We will also explore situational leader coaching points that can prepare us to foster young people’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.
