One of the most significant challenges for those supporting system involved youth who have experienced health disparities is to effectively engage them in managing their energy in the face of being burdened by compulsive PTSD responses to trauma triggers. One solution is to coach System Involved youth on Transformational Calm Power Practices that are sustainable and lead to improved relationship outcomes. In this training, we will explore how to enhance our capacity to support system involved youth by exploring Calm Power Energy Management Practices that prepare us to foster young people’s emotional development and wellbeing, strengthen their resilience and ability to heal from traumatic events and build meaningful relationships. Practicing and sharing the methods outlined by this workshop will allow us to improve the practice of how we empower system-involved youth and families.
