No Such Thing as a Bad Kid: Understanding and Responding to Kids with Emotional & Behavioral Challenges Using a Positive, Trauma-Informed, Strength-Based Approach

Presented by Charlie Appelstein, M.S.W.

Strength-based practice is an emerging approach to guiding at-risk children, youth, and families that is exceptionally positive and inspiring. Its focus is on strength-building rather than flaw-fixing. It begins with the belief that every young person has or can develop strengths and utilize past successes to mitigate problem behavior and enhance functioning. This 1.5 hour webinar will highlight some of the key principles and techniques of this transforming modality. Areas covered include: what is strength-based practice & the power of a positive attitude & culture; the effects of trauma and positive emotions on the brain; mindset bolstering, strength-based communication principles and techniques - including re-framing, positive-predicting and inspirational metaphors; self-esteem building & activities for at-risk children and youth; and a host of creative cognitive behavioral strategies.
