⭐ 15 October 2024 – How to help troubled and troublesome teenagers

CPD Event title: How to help troubled and troublesome teenagers

Brief Description Of Event: This live online training event gives you the essential knowledge, tips and practical skills you need to help troubled teenagers unlock their potential and begin to build lives for themselves that work well.

Tutor Richard Brook has a wealth of hands-on practical experience in adolescent mental health and social work which he draws on throughout the day – you will have plenty of time to ask questions and discuss how you can implement the skills and techniques in your own work or with the teens you care for.

The programme is varied and intensive, yet lively with a strong focus on gaining skills. It clarifies what healthy teenage development looks like, why things can go wrong and the best ways to help young people overcome obstacles and begin to create lives for themselves that work well.

Richard also shows how, by working with the ‘givens’ of human nature, and ensuring that sound knowledge of how people really function is applied intelligently to teenagers, you can speed up progress, reduce anti-social behaviour and teen depression, and bring young people real benefits.

At the end of the day you will find yourself more empowered to respond effectively to each individual’s needs and temperament, whilst avoiding yourself the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.
