Group Counseling Training

 

A Restorative Practice

 

 

 

 

Basic group counseling skills training for all those involved with group management, house meetings, counseling groups, therapy groups or other specialized group work. An essential part of the counseling process is to help the youth or family member articulate the feeling or thought – putting it to words. In a group format, trainees will learn the group counseling skills to foster open and expressive communication. Barriers to interpersonal effectiveness covers anxiety and fear, shyness, self-blame, stereotyping and prejudice, as well as the importance of optimism in overcoming potential barriers. Those who are hyperactive, oppositional, or disruptive often attempt to defeat the group dynamic. Training will benefit group leaders, co-leaders and other adult participants at all professional levels. This training will provide trainees much needed skills in using Restorative Practices interventions.

Ethics and Moral Reasoning

 

 

Effective Treatment Programs for juvenile offenders and anti-social youth need Moral Reasoning training. Moral Reasoning is a developmental situation. Anti-social behavior reflects a delay in moral reasoning and ego-centric bias. The aim of the training  is to remediate that developmental delay.
