You know the feeling; you go to a training on trauma and get all fired up with the new knowledge and then a youth you are working with does something and you don't have a clue how to respond. Come hear about how you can look at behaviors as language with responses that create healing opportunities and build relationship rather than compliance. Practical interventions will be discussed with examples given. Questions are invited. Come ready to engage, laugh, learn, and think.


Workshop fee –  $30.00. This workshop is limited to 40 participants.

Two (2) CEUs will be available to those who complete this training.

Applying Positive Youth Development Research and Practices

The Annual Conference on Youth emerged from Allen Superior Court, Family Relations Division’s desire that all agencies working with children and families and the court operate within the same strengths-based philosophy. In 1990, the Court offered its first Annual Conference on Youth on PFW’s campus.

Since then the Conference has grown to over 1400 participants and is currently held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. This yearly training, funded in part by a grant from Foellinger Foundation, brings in top professionals in the field of youth and family services to train area workers on strengths-based practices.
