Supporting Youth Survivors | Challenging Adultism in Clinical Interventions

When working with a young person who has experienced relationship violence, we consider the additional barriers minors face in accessing services such as shelter, counseling and protective orders. We may be overlooking barriers present within our own therapeutic interventions and agency practices with youth clients. Join us for an interactive webinar developed to help agency staff reflect on how best to support youth survivors. Participants will have an opportunity to assess agency and counselor readiness for providing services to youth survivors. They will also be able to consider strategies to counter the impact adultism can have on therapeutic relationships between adults and youth.
