Foundations & Self-Awareness of Social Development (Seattle, Feb 20, 2020)

STARS Credits: 3

The SEL competence and well-being of youth workers is necessary for creating programs where young people see social skills modeled and discussed. This introspective workshop is designed to support youth workers with their own ongoing social development. Participants will explore their personal identity, strengths, and values in social and professional settings, and how that influences their approach to communication, teamwork, responsibility, and leadership. Participants will identify ways to grow their social competencies and how that can impact their work with youth.    

Participants will:

  • Understand the framework for SEL and a foundation for thinking about Social Development
  • Understand the concepts of social identity and intersectionality
  • Explore how identity and intersectionality apply to themselves as individuals and as youth workers/staff
  • Identify individual communication and personality styles and their impact in a team setting
  • Utilize skills to understand how personal communication styles and identities influence relationships and group dynamics
  • Assess readiness to implement teamwork facilitation and cultivating responsibility/leadership with young people.
