Event description

Description

Structure and Clear Limits - How do you prevent chaos in a youth environment without stifling youth’s positive energy? Youth need structure and clear limits in order to feel safe. This interactive workshop helps participants analyze the level of structure in their programs and practice identifying and maintaining clear limits.

Participants will:

  • Understand how structure and clear limits meet the developmental needs of youth
  • Explore ways to improve their program’s structure
  • Establish limits for their programs

Many young people face a lot of uncertainty and inconsistency in their lives, which can limit their capacity or even willingness to take on new challenges and problem solve. The strategies in this workshop are designed to support you in creating a consistent, predictable environment where youth feel like they can trust the space, trust you, and relax enough to be open to engaging with your program. Feelings of emotional and physical safety (Safe Environment) are the foundation to working up the Pyramid of Program Quality and being able to achieve higher levels of engagement.
