This training will provide participants with effective engagement strategies that can be used to engage youth and families. The training will identify various strategies that can be done on an individual and an organizational level to increase the level of engagement between the professional and the client being served. This training will also challenge participants to identify barriers to engagement and identify strategies on how to overcome those barriers. The training discusses resistance as a part of engagement and how to overcome resistance. At the end of the training, participants will learn the concept of resiliency and begin to explore how they can begin building resiliency in the youth and families they are working with.
