The first day of training focuses on learning a communication style that is directive and designed to illicit change in young people. Day one also includes an introduction to 8 part curriculum formulated to reduce ambivalence to change and motivate delinquent teens and young adults to make better decisions.
On day two and three of the training a tripartite cognitive behavior model will be examined. An overview of this model will introduce participants to the following techniques:
• A way of directing delinquent teens and young adults to examine their own moral compasses. This technique is designed to increase empathy for others as well as develop reasoning skills for troubled youth.
• A systematic view of anger and violence. This model explores the origins of anger and gives concrete ways in which young people can reduce verbal aggression as well as physical.
• An examination of social skill social deficits. This module introduces participants to a method of teaching basic social skills to their children, students or clients. Many young people continue to display problem behavior in school or at home because they lack basic skills such as “How to apologize” How to express feelings”, or “How to make a complaint” etc.
