Co-Constructing Vision Plans with System Involved Youth (SIY): Providing Present Motivation & Future Direction
Time & Location
Apr 10, 2024, 12:00 PM – 2:00 PM PDT
About the Event
One of the most significant challenges for those supporting system involved youth (SIY) with Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (CPTSD) is to effectively engage and motivate them to build a positive future vision for their lives and support them in the design of an achievable vision plan that will guide and sustainably motivate them towards achieving healthy and successful outcomes. In this training, we will learn how to facilitate the development of self-guided motivation and future direction utilizing processes involved in co-constructing vision plans in partnership with system involved youth that will strengthen their ability to heal from traumatic events so that they can lead a meaningful life. Practicing and sharing the coaching methods outlined by this workshop will allow us to improve the practice of how we empower system-involved youth. When youth gain access to their mentor/therapist/coach’s way of motivating, engaging, and expressing themselves, they can begin to see how their own thinking, emotions, and experiences shape their growth.
● Participants will be able to identify at least 2 methods for facilitating the development of youth voice that provides present and future direction towards successful outcomes.
