The Struggle to Be Strong: Professional Development Session

January 17 @ 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Help teens recognize and name their strengths, and discover they’re not alone in facing life’s most difficult challenges. Youth will learn about the seven resiliencies — insight, independence, relationships, initiative, creativity, humor, and morality — that everyone needs to survive and thrive in even the toughest times.

Participants in this workshop will have an opportunity to practice active listening, facilitating group read-alouds, and communication techniques for creating a safe space for teens. 

The Story-Based Approach uses true stories by teens as a gateway to important discussions with youth. 

Topics include: asking tough questions, taking charge, overcoming adversity 

Our Story-Based Approach package includes:

  • Professional Development, ideal for educators, counselors, and youth service professionals
  • Curriculum Guide with structured and scripted lessons
  • Anthologies of relevant, award-winning true stories by teens

To register for this session, please visit our online store to purchase “Package A” or “Package B,” or contact Loretta Chan at Lchan@youthcomm.org for more information.
