Understanding and Responding to At-Risk Kids and their Family Members Using Positive, Trauma-Informed, Strength-Based Principles and Techniques

   This full-day conference is a follow-up to the training Charlie presented in 2014. Charlie will begin by reviewing the key concepts of using a positive, trauma-informed, strength-based approach with at-risk kids and their families.
   A host of new topics will be presented, including: Encouraging growth vs. fixed mindsets with at-risk kids; core-strength-based verbal interventions; what child and youth care professionals should know about developmental psychology, creative strategies for helping kids to better self-manage; and relationship-based limit setting.
