A young person's challenging and troubling behaviors are frequently the focus of youth placed in Resource Families or STRTPs rather than recognizing them as externalizations of inner pain and distress. Beyond surface management lie the keys to understanding, reaching, and teaching young people who desperately need the guiding light that a well-trained, caring adult can provide. Learning and practicing listening, and decoding skills are essential to understanding the private logic and goals that underlie a young person's difficult of self-defeating behavior. Participants in this 2-day training will examine the impact of trauma and disappointment on our youth. Defiant youth outwit adults with strategies of fight, flight, and fool. The presenter will describe how to understand the private logic of adult-wary youth, thus helping participants to decode their troubling behavior and begin replacing hostile, resistant encounters with respectful alliances.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Describe the impact of trauma and disappointment for youth in out-of-home care
• Decode troubling behavior and the private logic of adult-way youth
• Replace strategies that trigger fight and/or flight responses with engagement that promotes respectful alliances
