Why you don’t want to miss this event:
The essence of effective child and youth care practice includes the ability to make use of opportunities available in the moments of daily life to facilitate positive change. This course defines these skills and offers an opportunity to incorporate this approach into your own work with young people. The primary focus is on strengthening reflective practice and thinking systematically about the process and context of our work in a helping relationship.
You’ll review the characteristics of a contemporary Child and Youth Care approach, explore a framework to increase awareness and meaning of daily life events, and learn the four dimensions of intervening into daily life events.
What you’ll gain from this course:
· A deeper understanding of the characteristics of a contemporary child and youth care approach
· A fresh way to think about the process of using daily life events to facilitate change
· A practical framework for intervening in the daily life events of young people and families
