Discover new ways to motivate and engage young people, promote behaviour change, improve their mental health – and much more
Tutor Richard Brook brings a practical and humorous approach to the bewildering array of models currently directed at front-line workers.
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, temperament and learning style, whilst avoiding the emotional pitfalls of working in stressful situations.
