Be sure to join us for an April 16th Webinar where we talk about:  “Building Resiliency Skills in Youth – Tips for Navigating a Crisis”.

This Lunch & Learn interactive session is offered virtually by Four Corners Health Department.  It provides evidence-informed practices that licensed mental health clinicians, school counselors, and parents/guardians can utilize in responding to youth who present themselves as experiencing a crisis.

One key to a crisis response is identifying if the situation is a problem and/or a predicament from the youth’s perspective.  Many youth want ‘help’, and when given the opportunity and encouragement can build resiliency.  The Building Resiliency Skills in Children & Youth Guidedeveloped by Dr. Belau, will be offered as a ‘roadmap’ for discussion.

Dr. Don Belau, Ph.D., LIMHP #238, School Psychologist, will be leading this session.  1.0 hours of continuing education will be provided for licensed mental health clinicians.  A certificate of attendance will be available for all others.
