Rod Baxter has been a youth worker since that time everyone was freaking out about the Y2K bug. He loves reflecting on youth work philosophically, professionally and practically.
About the Training
Even though “strengths-based” is a familiar term amongst youth workers, we can often be confused about what the kaupapa actually is and how we know we’re practicing in a way that enhances the mana of young people and their whānau.
This session will:
Briefly summarise and redefine ”strengths-based” practice
Build upon your existing strengths-focused and mana-enhancing approaches
Offer some new ways of reframing your language
Provide new skills and frameworks for creating change and hope with young people.
