This is a great opportunity for an intensive 3-day workshop on using the medicine wheel to develop strength-based techniques when working with tribal youth.
Using the “medicine wheel” as a framework, participants will learn:
- A traditional view of discipline
- How to build positive relationships with youth
- Proactive means of teaching or working with youth
- How to promote balanced youth with strong leadership skills
- How to move youth towards independence and self-reliance
Using the “Laws of Nature” and an inter-relational view of the world, this workshop explores how the four cardinal directions or “medicine wheel” can be used as a framework that adults can use to help them define a style of parenting, discipline or leadership that is strength-based, non-confrontational and culturally responsive.
