Six Keys to Thriving, 1-day training

Working with troubled and troubling young people and their families can be very stressful and challenging. In order to provide the most effective services, school or program staff must be well-prepared and well-protected to be as accessible and responsive to the demands of the job as possible. It is important that schools and organizations operate on a clearly articulated foundation of values that can help create and sustain a strong, positive culture in which healing, learning, and growth can occur.

Six Keys to Thriving is a one-day workshop that focuses on the needs and interests of those being served as well as those providing the services. A goal of any school or program with a healthy culture is to promote resilient and responsible behavior, not only in the young people they serve, but also for staff tasked with providing those services.

Content in this workshop is based on the Model of Leadership and Service*, which identifies six areas of innate human need (biosocial drives) that apply equally to leaders, team members, and the children and families we serve. Once these needs are met (safety, belonging, achievement, power, purpose, and adventure), individuals are free to reach their potential and flourish.

Training Cost: $110 USD per participant (payable by check or credit card to CF Learning)
