Description

THIS TRAINING IS FUNDED THROUGH A GRANT AND IS FREE FOR CHILD WELFARE WORKERS. If you are not a child welfare worker and are interested in attending, please contact the organizer for further details.

Description:

In the field of child welfare, youth who are being served often have significant mental health and behavioral difficulties. These difficulties can be overwhelming to the youth and the families caring for them. At times these difficulties, may lead youth to have thoughts of suicide. Understanding these difficulties, potential causes, and support options can help families be successful.

This training is meant to help workers understand how early attachment patterns can impact individuals through their lifetime, recognize the emotional and mental health needs of youth, and be able to identify suicide risk factors. Prevention strategies and treatment options will also be explored. The training will include hands on activities and exercises that help the worker to understand concepts being taught.

Objectives:

1. Describe long term impacts of secure and insecure infant attachment cycles

2. Identify 3 emotional and mental health needs of youth
