                                       Seminar Program Presentations 

The presentations will emphasize a strength-based approach to helping youth overcome challenges in their three main environments of home, school and with peers.  The presentations will focus on the importance of teaching social, emotional and therapeutic life skills using multiple intelligence methods that emphasize individual learning styles.  Further, the presentation will demonstrate how the use of visual analogies (pictures), music, and hands-on experiential activities teach youth in ways that they will both understand and remember.  In the process, the workshop will tie together the more traditional tactics of treating juvenile offending behaviors within the paradigm of addressing the needs of the whole child who engaged in criminal behavior.

 The workshop directly addresses the use of creative victim-centered approaches to treatment and management of juveniles who offend which are based on sound, current research relating to multi-sensory learning, multiple intelligences, and solution-focused brief therapy. In addition, attendees will understand how these strategies are being implemented within the context of residential treatment (including use of polygraph examinations).  The presenters will demonstrate to the audience several practical methods of increasing the capacity of children to demonstrate emotional intelligence and important life skills such as: anger management, problem solving, overcoming peer pressure, keeping laws and rules, and building support systems.
