One of the most significant challenges for those supporting system involved youth is to effectively engage them to break free of negative self talk and doubt when it is required to be successful in performance related activities, like giving a speech, job interviews, acting, singing, and playing sports. In this training, we will explore how to enhance our capacity to support system involved youth by exploring Coaching Youth to Channel Positive Mental Focus in Performance Related Activities that prepare them and us to foster young people’s emotional development and wellbeing and strengthen their resilience and ability to heal from traumatic events and lead a meaningful life. Practicing and sharing the methods outlined by this training will allow us to improve the practice of how we empower system-involved youth and families.
