What’s Your Type? How Personality, Communication & Learning Styles Can Affect Your Support for System Involved Youth
Time & Location
About the Event
We all have our strengths and weaknesses when supporting system involved youth and families involved. Some of them come from who we naturally are and what comes easiest to us versus what challenges us. Although we want to provide the most effective support for our vulnerable youth and families in the child welfare and juvenile justice systems, the challenging areas can interfere with providing thorough and excellent support. Learn your type [Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), communication style, learning style and more] and how to use your strengths and address your areas of challenge to support improvements in outcomes for system involved youth and families.
