Conflict with youth is normal and to be expected. But too often, our response to conflict with youth fails to take into account the needs they are trying to get met. Misunderstanding leads to an escalation of behavior and more difficult circumstances, perhaps even with serious consequences for youth.
Good conflict resolution skills can enhance connection and understanding, which youth need for healthy development. Research demonstrates that youth workers who model healthy conflict resolution skills empower youth with social and emotional developmental assets. Learning to have better interactions with youth, especially in conflict situations, helps build relationships. And in the process, youth learn new skills to better communicate their needs and avoid conflict in the future.
Join us for a fun, participant-driven, and hands-on training. You’ll learn awesome tools to use with youth in conflict through real examples from your work while practicing skills you need to be successful in resolving conflict. Don’t miss your chance to attend this dynamic training.
