Event description

Description

Young people who have endured adverse childhood experiences may have long-term effects on their brain, health, and behaviors. Being surrounded by caring adults who will nurture their strengths, rather than trigger past experiences is key.

This educational seminar for professionals will focus on the importance of healthy, healing connections and strategies that restore control to young people from whom it may have been taken away.

Upon completion of this training participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the effects that childhood trauma has on the body, brain, and behavior.
  2. Explain the basics of trauma sensitive care, including the critical importance of well-boundaried connection and giving. youth the experience of having control over their decisions.
  3. Recite and describe the Seven C’s model of positive youth development and resilience
  4. Critique the behavioral change process and understand how strengths-based interaction helps facilitate positive actions.
  5. Communicate with youth in a way that builds on existing strengths rather than undermines forward movement.
  6. Utilize and develop stress management strategies that are designed to move youth away from self-destructive quick fixes and towards positive behaviors.
