WEBINAR by Ana Rhodes Castro

WORKING WITH CHILDREN AND YOUTH. Skills and metaskills for working on issues as bullying, lying and other power expressions

Children and young people are the future of our planet and communities. It is necessary to empower them, to support them in following their goals, to help them develop creativity and skills to face the world. This seminar is a journey into learning skills, tools and attitudes to work with the younger generations, as educator, parent, counselor, therapist.

Topics covered

I bambini e i giovani sono il futuro delle nostre comunità e del pianeta.

Children and Youth are the Future of our communities and planet.

Working with youth provides the opportunity to:

  • Support young people in your community to follow their goals and to feel empowered.
  • Support children and youth to unfold their creativity and force for the future.
  • Develop skills and awareness about the mysterious forces that move the world and through the world.
  • Create and co-create with youth congruent models that support our visions and our communities.

Youth workers design programs for local children and teens, offer support and counselling and assist various community agencies. Working with youth requires Patience, Communication, Flexibility and Adaptability.

This class is a journey in learning creative and shapeshifting skills and metaskills that will support you as a practitioner to engage with the younger generations.

We will also will visit a bit the land of  parents and toddler development and wellbeing: Relationships with toddlers change as they develop independence, language and strong feelings.

Let’s explore some of the issues that come up and have fun learning together.
