There are many internal and external expectations of showing up correctly around the upcoming holidays. For system-involved youth, there is an added pressure of managing their competing feelings and issues around belonging and celebrating life. This session will teach training participants how to engage culturally significant holidays, anniversaries and milestones holidays and their effects on our system involved youth. We will take a a particular focus on the challenging effects of the social issues involved in the current pandemic, political and racial upheaval, immigration and identity politics while trying to find joyfulness in their lives.
