Angry & Challenging Youth 2 Day Seminar with Dr R. Brooks (8 DVD) - 12 CPD Hours

plus P&P (if applicable)




Youth who display anger, resistance, and disruptive behaviours pose significant challenges for clinicians, educators, and parents. In this two-day seminar, Dr. Brooks examines these negative behaviours using a strength-based framework that focuses on the concepts of mindsets, motivation, and resilience. He describes (a) the mindset of adults who work effectively with angry youth, (b) the mindset of many angry youth, and (c) the mindset of youth who are more cooperative, self-disciplined, hopeful, and resilient. He discusses the components of motivation and a “resilient mindset” and strategies for nurturing these qualities in angry youth. He also highlights a framework to help us deal more successfully with our own stress and pressure.
