Counseling Skills for Time-Constrained Facilities Staff, 8 hours

STC: 0920-014445

This course is geared toward counselors in camps and juvenile facilities who gather large amounts of information in a short period of time. Because youth need to feel supported while being directed and held accountable, the counselor must have a general understanding of adolescent development, honed active-listening skills, and good working knowledge of Motivational Interviewing techniques. Participants receive and practice proven strategies that conserve time, create a better relationship, and help the youth develop both responsibility and self-esteem.
