August 07, 2013
First Nations Behavioral Health Association’s Society of T.R.U.T.H. announces a workshop for parents, foster/adoptive parents, teachers, juvenile probation workers, group home, detention or shelter home workers, parent trainers, substance abuse workers or anyone that works with Native American youth and families.
When and where: October 14 – 16, 2013 – Mystic Lake Casino Hotel, Prior Lake, Minnesota
Cost: $375 per person
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.
