Training Description

One of the most significant challenges for supporting caregivers of system involved youth is to effectively engage them in leading by facilitation in order to develop the prefrontal cortexes of their children so they can 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 Caregiver Rapport Building, Caregiver Leadership by Facilitation, and Self Regulating Strategies that empower Caregivers to have effective sensitive topic conversations with their children. We will also explore situational leader coaching points that can prepare us to foster caregivers' ability to effectively influence their children’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.

Meet Our Trainer

Mr. Robert Dousa, for the past 26 years has been working on researching how to support the healing of people, especially young adults suffering from Complex Post Traumatic Disorders (CPTSD) while experiencing and receiving various healing modalities on himself and reading several alternative healing books for personal freedom from trauma. Prior to retirement from the public education system (22 years paid, 3 years volunteer) and most especially (2003-2022) as a Program Manager in the Behavioral Health Department for the Oakland Unified School District’s Alcohol, Tobacco, and Drugs Intervention program, Robert developed a strengths-based life coaching program, grant funded by the CA Dept of Education, that utilized 15 life coaches (diversity of gender, multi-ethnic, with individual hobby strengths) who utilized a variety of interventions and approaches while implementing inside Oakland schools. Currently, he offers services designed to empower young adults struggling with inner negative talk to find their own inner guiding light and individual gifts, talents, and passions in support of their future… and to also coach parents of SIY to re-establish a positive influential relationship with their children, guiding them towards healing their own inner child in the process. Currently, he is providing individual life coaching, training of intervention approaches, coaching training, and teaching to those individuals and organizations that support system involved youth.

This course meets the qualifications for (2) 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.
