A conversation starter.
Deep, meaningful conversations – rooted in a wide perception allowing you to identify and respond with empathy to those potentially displaying the effects of previous trauma. You’ll have a chance to practice these new skills and techniques through the Advocates for Youth classroom simulation program (a simulated teaching experience). And yes, this one includes a couple hours of additional homework. It’ll be worth it, we promise.
Roll up your sleeves.
Delivered through four weekly, two-hour sessions held at pre-set times over a five-week period, this 12-hour virtual instructor-led course continues to build on the content you learned in the self-paced course, focusing on growing your skill.
