Baker/Bradford “Teening Up” Train-the-Trainer Workshop
When: Monday, August 6, 2012
Time: 9:30am-12:30 pm
Where: Baker County Cooperative Extension, 1025 W. Macclenny Ave., Macclenny, FL
The Northeast Florida Healthy Start Coalition and Baker County Cooperative Extension are hosting a “Train-the-Trainer” workshop to equip participants with the tools needed to implement all of the “Teening Up” program or pieces of it that may fit individual agency needs.
Teening Up targets parents with teens between the ages of 9 and 16 years old and serves as a prevention tool rather than an intervention. The curriculum has six sessions that each last approximately an hour-and-a-half. The program teaches parents about the normal development of young and middle adolescent children and teaches skills to avoid more serious problems. The sessions include: the teen brain; developmental transitions; positive discipline; talking with teens about sex, drugs, and alcohol; understanding teen anger (and managing yours); and empowering youth to build assets. Teening Up also includes three activities per session to engage parents and practice skills, reflection and empathy-building and asset assessments.
Each participant will receive a copy of the Teening Up curriculum. The training will include instruction on how to facilitate the curriculum and how to incorporate it into your organization.
