Effective Strategies for Engaging and Empowering High-Risk Youth to Conquer Their Difficulties

High-risk youth and their families can be a nightmare to engage and retain in counseling. In this "hands-on" intensive workshop, participants will learn a collaborative strength-based counseling approach that empowers young people and their families, concerned members from their social networks, and involved helping professionals from larger systems to rapidly resolve their difficulties. The workshop format will combine information-rich didactic presentation, extensive use of videotape examples of major therapeutic tools and strategies, and a skill-building exercise.
