The One-Minute Counselor, 8 hours

STC: 0920-011550

This course prepares juvenile facilities and field staff to become more effective by using short, focused verbal interventions as part of behavior modification. Participants become familiar with the psycho-social developmental tasks that are particular to adolescence and how to be empathetic to the needs of youth while still being firm and fair. Participants self-assess personal styles and come to understand how assertiveness with others is a valuable counseling tool which helps keep the workplace an emotionally healthy environment, and lowers the probability of the need to use force with youth.
