Supporting Confidence, Competence and a Sense of Well-Being: A Two Day Workshop focused onYouth in Transition
Are you case manager, transition specialist, teacher, school counselor, family member, case manager, or state agency staff?
If so, this workshop is for you!
Being connected to people we love is critical to our emotional and physical well-being. Many youth experiencing our services are lonely and lack meaningful relationships. This workshop is designed to move beyond interventions and coverage to a system that supports enduring, freely chosen relationships, especially critical in the transition from youth to young adulthood. Difficult behaviors result from unmet needs. This workshop will examine seven quality of life indicators that are often missing and strategies to support belonging and build relationships.
