Building Cognitive and Social-Emotional Competence

This one-hour webinar is designed to help Youth and Families Thrive trainers use the one-day BUILDING COGNITIVE AND SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL COMPETENCE module.  All the materials you need to present this workshop to your staff or community group are available.   The webinar will focus on how to plan and present the materials
The one-day Building CSE Competence module takes the material presented in the Youth & Families ThriveTM courses to the next level in understanding the HOW of using the competencies.  It presents important ideas from the full course and allows participants to explore how the CSE competencies operate in daily experience and personal lives…and what we can do to help young people develop and strengthen them in their lives.
The module can be presented as two days of training.  The first day focuses on helping participants explore their own CSE competence and develop a plan for increasing their use of the competencies in their work with youth.  The second day provides program staff with a process for identifying how CSE competences are currently being taught and identifying opportunities and strategies for expanding their use in an organization’s youth programming.  
Participants will:
  • Become familiar with the workshop materials and options for presentation
  • Network with other instructors to create training teams
