Active Community Engagement with Transition Aged Youth
Think back to this time for yourself. What was it like for you? Social pressures to fit in while also trying to find out who you are. Being named an adult, but having limited idea how to do “adulting.” Being excited for the ‘here and now’ and having a difficult time holding on to ‘future-oriented’ goals. This time can be exciting, with lots of exploration and potentially lots of rockiness in relationships, work, school, and general day-to-day life. In order to work with TAY and truly connect with them, we must come to our practice with a developmentally appropriate lens, with interventions and engagement strategies which will call them in rather than shut them down or out. This discussion will cover various aspects of connecting with TAY, with a specific focus on working with complex trauma and dissociation in community mental health.
This session was originally presented as a live webinar in April 2020.
At the conclusion of this webinar participants will be able to:
- Introduce strategies for engaging Transition Aged Youth in Community Mental Health settings
- Clarify developmental and systemic considerations when working with Transition Aged Youth in Community Mental Health settings
- Identify options for resource and strength building with Transition Aged Youth in Community Mental Health Settings
