Event description

Description

Transition-Age Youth are unique in that they typically do not fit into services designed for children nor do they fit well into services designed for adults. They have their own unique characteristics as a sub-group and have been known for being difficult to engage. In this workshop, you will:

  1. Learn how complex trauma impacts transition-age youth.
  2. Learn strategies to engage successfully with these youth by hearing from experts (both professionals and the youth themselves).
  3. Get advanced viewing of the National Child Traumatic Stress Network (NCTSN) Youth Taskforce video, "Never Give Up"(scheduled for release October 2017).
  4. Practice with real case scenarios in small groups to reinforce learned concepts.

There are two options for this training - Sept. 22 at LifeWorks East and Sept. 29 at LifeWorks South. Both sessions are scheduled from 1-3:00pm. This training is designed to be interactive and experiential and to elevate the voice of youth as we strive to improve quality of services available to them. There will be time for Q&A afterwards for those interested. To switch to the 9/29/17 training, click on the link below:
