Techniques in Connecting with the Tweenager in Crisis Webinar

January 31 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CST

Techniques in Connecting with the Tweenager in Crisis

School Counselors, as well as licensed mental health therapists, are often challenged in supporting youth, ages 10-12 (tweenagers) who may respond to distress, with aggressive, non-compliant behaviors in the school/community setting. Comments from crisis response programs across Nebraska during the past year reflect trends in increased numbers of tweens being identified as needing crisis response support. The techniques shared in this session are evidence-informed and focused on the unique needs of the tweenager. Interventions for parents will also be provided.

Registration is required.

1 CEU is available for people in mental health professions.  A certificate of attendance will be available to all who attend.


  • Describe influence of adverse childhood experiences (ACES) upon the tweenager.
  • Describe at least 2 techniques that school counselors/mental health therapists can utilize in providing support to the tweenager.
  • Name at least 2 techniques that can be shared with parents who are providing support to the tweenager whose behaviors are creating safety concerns in the school and/or community.
  • Identify age-appropriate suicide risk assessments when concerned about the tweenager’s personal safety.

The presenter, Donald P. Belau, Ph.D., is a Nebraska Certified School Psychologist with extensive experience in working with children and adolescents. This will be a 60-minute, interactive presentation with post session opportunities to ask questions as well.
