Webinar – The Science and Art of Engaging Resistant and Traumatized Youth
May 20 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
This web-based training provides evidence-informed helping approaches and practical applications for those working with resistant and traumatized youth. Ultimately it addresses the value of engaging and investing this population, not merely in treatment but in their continuing care for addiction and mental health recovery as well as complex behavioral issues. This training will integrate the client-centered approach with a trauma-informed care framework and the principles and practices of motivational enhancement therapy. Science informs but doesn’t direct clinical practice and other helping professions; the art of applied science is relational in nature– building rapport, motivating, and supporting the teenager in a new, healthy lifestyle.
