Training Description

Effectively engaging caregivers in becoming secure attachments for their children and guiding their children towards other peer/adult healthy attachments can help them to: be successful in relationships, academics, and career related activities; build networks of support; and 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 (SIY) by exploring how caregivers can empower themselves and their children to identify and build relationships with people who can become secure attachments as a means to improve relationship outcomes that lead to their own community building. We will also explore situational leadership coaching points that can prepare us to foster caregiver ability to effectively influence their children’s transformational behaviors that are sustainable and lead to healthy community engagement, 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.

● Identify at least 2 components of a secure attachment style;

● Identify at least 2 techniques for teaching caregivers of youth who are system involved or at high risk for system involvement on how to foster a secure attachment; and
