About this Event

Who is the Workshop For?

Teachers, caregivers, disability workers, social workers, youth workers, case workers, support workers, professionals and practitioners who provide support, teach and care for adolescents who present with complex needs and behaviours.

Key Content

This webinar, supported by participant engagement (questions, polling and feedback), will bring focus to the following evidence-based content.

  • Adopting a personalised, growth-focused and intentional approach to understanding and responding to adolescents.
  • Understanding ‘normal’ adolescent development, including behaviour, developmental tasks (identity) and risk-taking processes.
  • Understanding what is 'under the surface' for adolescents, including brain development.
  • Understanding the developmental impact of historical experiences on the adolescent developmental transition (and brain), including trauma, early uncertainty and different life events.
  • 'Responding' rather than 'reacting' to adolescent behaviour and under the surface needs.
  • Key areas of growth intent (or focus of scripts, strategies and intervention) for adolescents' social, emotional, cognitive and wellbeing development.
  • Relationship-focused and trauma-responsive scripts, strategies and methods to 'respond to the needs' underpinning various adolescent behaviours, and in a neuro-developmental manner (or as personalised to an adolescent's developmental level).
  • How to manage expectations and bring flexibility to support roles, with a focus on implementing a side-by-side support and coaching role.
