Training Description

If we help System Involved Youth (SIY) find meaning in life this can motivate them to break free of negative self-talk and doubt and pursue success in social settings, academics, and career related activities. In this training, we will explore how to foster intrinsic motivation with SIY using strengths-based, healing-informed practices derived from the latest neuroscience and well-known indigenous practices that promote healing and optimal human expression. We will also explore situational leadership coaching points that can empower us to effectively support young people’s sustainable, transformational behaviors that not only lead to healthy community engagement and improved outcomes, but also 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.

Participants will be able to:

● Identify at least 2 components of intrinsic motivation development techniques;

● Identify at least 2 strengths-based, healing-informed approaches for fostering system involved youth (SIY) motivation, resilience, and well-being; and
