Event description

Description

The Community Partnerships for Protecting Children (CPPC) 2018 Fall Statewide Learning Network Convening will feature keynote speaker, Charlie Appelstein, for an all-day general session on his positive, strength based approach to building connections for youth in communities.

Charlie Appelstein, M.S.W., President of Appelstein Training Resources, LLC (ATR) provides expert strength-based training, consultation, publications, CDs, and DVDs for individuals and groups who work with children and youth experiencing serious emotional and behavioral issues.

Described as “the best youth care trainer in America” by Robert Lieberman, former president of the American Association of Children’s Residential Centers, Charlie has devoted his entire adult career to helping children and youth struggling with emotional and behavioral challenges and those who guide them. An engaging, informative, and humorous speaker, Charlie is the author of three critically acclaimed books on youth care and the creator of two innovative CDs that helps kids and parents make better choices and lead happier lives. Charlie’s strength-based approach delivers a message of hope and possibility to our most vulnerable youth and those who shape and influence their lives.

The CPPC Fall Statewide Learning Network general session will begin with Mr. Appelstein's interactive, trauma-informed, and strength-based approaches to working with youth. The afternoon sessions will focus on application of this approach directed to brainstorming and development of action plans for CPPC communities around community planning for supporting youth with opportunities for community connections through areas such as employment, mentorship, friendships, hobbies, skill building activities, and voluneteering.

Attendees of the event will receive a complimentary copy of Mr. Appelstein's book, No Such Thing as a Bad Kid, Understanding and Responding to Kids with Emotional and Behavioral Challenges Using a Positive, Strength-Based Approach.
