Risk Reduction Planning with the CARE-2 for Youth at Risk for Violence
June 22, 2022, 1-4PM

Virtual

Know the Risk factors of youth violence using the CARE-2. Targeting the risk factors for youth violence with evidence-based practice using the CARE-2 can reduce the risk of future violence. For instance, many youth that are at risk for violence have been traumatized by family violence as small children. This affects the brain, relationship skills, and development. Using the Behavior Objecactive Sequence can help therapists build skills from the present level of development instead of the age of the youth. Trauma-Informed care will also be important, as is family therapy. Coordinated services can increase the effectiveness of services.

Trauma Informed Treatment for Youth Involved in the Juvenile Justice System
August 24, 2022, 1-4PM

Virtual

Many youth in the juvenile justice system have experienced maltreatment prior to their teenage years. Many of the families of these youth are involved with child protective services by the time a youth reaches the age of 6. By the age of 12, the youth has been referred to a department of juvenile services for a variety of acts of law breaking. In order to change that pattern there must be supports and services for the entire family not just the youth that broke the laws of the community. The methods to accomplish this will require changes in how we adjudicate these youth by helping parents improve their parenting skills with services for parent trauma, developmental skill building, mental illness and substance abuse.
