Brief Program Description

Staff who work with challenging youth are often called upon to handle a wide range of confusing and frustrating behavioral problems. It can be tempting to react to all misbehavior with strict discipline, but a “one size fits all” approach is often ineffective and alienates students with whom we must build helping relationships. During this practical, highly interactive 3-hour workshop with author and international speaker Dr. Parese, you will: (1) Discuss a logical decision-making model for responding to three different types of problems; (2) explore interventions with deliberately misbehaving youth; (3) examine the impact of high stress, low self-esteem, and prior trauma on emotional misbehavior with youth; (4) identify four predictable phases of an escalating crisis, including specific strategies for each phase; and (5) practice three levels of active listening for de-escalating emotional youth.
