Conflict is often negatively attributed to adolescent development. The common belief is that the teenage brain is to blame. But the truth is, conflict is natural and inevitable and is neither positive nor negative; it is just a fact of human relationships across all age groups. Many people are uncomfortable with conflict; some even find it scary or go out of their way to avoid it. Learning to deal with conflict is critical to success in all areas of life.
Youth workers are especially important in the role of modeling effective conflict resolution skills. Helping a young person understand conflict, address the fears behind conflict, and avoid ruptures in their relationships will provide them with a skill that will benefit them throughout their life. Learning to deal with conflict more effectively and think differently about it will build stronger, more trusting relationships and resiliency.
Join us for this insightful training and discover new tools you can use in your day to day work with young people, as well as in your own personal life. Get up to date information about adolescent brain development that refutes the previous model most of us are familiar with. This is learning every youth worker will benefit from. Register now!
