Youth Thrive Workshops

Youth Thrive is a framework for working with adolescents who have experienced trauma, particularly those in the child welfare system.  This training reviews the premises of trauma informed care, then delves into adolescent development, brain development and the 5 protective and promotive factors.  The research behind this training comes from the Center for the Study of Social Policy – CSSP.  You can get additional information at  The training is provided thanks to a grant from the Greater Kanawha Valley Foundation for the “Fostering Futures to Help Youth Thrive” project.  Space is limited so I encourage folks to register sooner than later.

The training is free – lunch is provided – and the training has been approved for 13 Social Work CEUs and 14.80 MCLEs.  Register/Information at the links below.  If you have questions or special dietary needs, call 304-205-6426.
