Child and Adolescent Development

Fundamentals of Prevention

Preventing a problem from ever happening is by far the more cost effective and humane strategy. A series of interrelated topics are addressed in these workshops including understanding prevention across the lifespan, strategies for strengthening families, cultural competency and building resiliency and protective factors.

Organizational, School and Leader Capacity Building

Effective, compassionate organizations, schools and leaders don’t just “happen”. They are developed and strengthened over time with intentionality. Factors to examine include the dynamics of multiple generations and cultures in the workplace, a commitment to continuous self-assessment and learning, and the integration of resiliency fundamentals.

Self-Care

An ironic hazard for helping professionals is that in their desire to make a difference for others they often neglect practicing what is best for their own well-being. The goal of these workshops is to provide helpers with the awareness, skills, as well as the permission, they need to maintain healthy personal and professional lifestyles.
