Through a combination of group discussion and activities, attendees will explore realities from the optics of youth and how to reframe approaches to begin building relationship bank accounts. This training is the pre-requisite to the training, “Prepare Instead of Repair: Invoking, Evoking, and Provoking Intentional Connections with Youth and Families.”
