Date/Time: February 18 from 9:30 a.m. - 4 p.m.

Location: Professional Development Program-4 Tower Place, Room 608, Albany, NY 12203

 

Engaging and sustaining the focus of vulnerable youth for case planning and implementation can be especially challenging given their life experience. This training will discuss concepts of motivation, examine youth needs and how they may be met, consider where youth may be in the Stages of Change, and identify and utilize tools for assessing youth motivation. Practice using a model for engaging youth and increasing their motivation will enable caregivers to assist youth with their successful transition to self-sufficiency via life skills development and future planning.
