Do you communicate with youth in a way that makes them feel supported and heard? This interactive workshop introduces various communication techniques that help you build more supportive, youth-centered relationships.

Participants will:

  1. Understand the concept of positive, purposeful interaction with youth. 
  2. Learn the characteristics of effective questions. 
  3. Understand the concept of active listening. 
  4. Learn the characteristics of effective positive responses to youth and their work.
