"What the Behavior of Our Youth is Telling Us"

  • Berrien County Health Department 2149 East Napier Avenue Benton Harbor, MI, 49022 United States (map)

Course Description:

This training will focus on adolescents whose behaviors are disruptive in multiple domains, potentially disrupting home or foster care placements and often leading to involvement in the juvenile justice system. Behavioral patterns in youth serve as a form of communication, and misbehavior is not always willful. Learning what their behavior is telling us about their emotional well-being and mental health can help us to respond more effectively with the most appropriate intervention. Attendees will learn risks and protective factors influencing emotional and mental health among adolescents, along with strategies to respond effectively to build resiliency.
