Trust is the building block of all relationships. As leaders, you play a big part in cultivating trust with your staff. As staff return from quarantine, or new staff come on-board, building and re-building trust will help them feel safe in coming to work and caring for children and youth. In this session of our COVID-19 re-entry series, we’ll focus on the hallmarks of trusting relationships and using empathic responses to staff’s COVID-related concerns. Read More

The Tween (9-12) and Teen (13-18) years can be a stressful time in life. It’s the perfect time for parents, teachers, and involved adults to teach tweens and teens problem-solving skills, how to regulate emotions, and positive coping mechanisms. Learning and applying these skills are necessary for teens to become responsible and productive adults in the community. Tweens and teens who don’t learn how to cope with stress find destructive ways to deal with issues in their lives, such as eating disorders, self-inflicted injuries, teen violence, drinking and drug use, sex and other risky behaviors. Join us to learn how you can help tweens and teens learn coping skills in your program. Read More
