The purpose of most treatment programs are to help youth reach their goals. While it may seem that goal-setting should be one of the first things that happen, that’s not always the best strategy. Setting treatment goals can be intimidating or off-putting to a youth, especially if his reading skills are poor, or if adults in his life have belittled his ambitions and hopes. If he’s to answer questions honestly, he has to believe that you, as a treatment team member, will respect his decisions and his aspirations.
