Government organisations set up to help rangatahi have staff working with young people - sometimes very troubled ones - every day. Staff may find themselves dealing with young people who are working through challenges that they would like more training on.
Workshops for Government Organisations
Workshops can be booked individually or we can create a series of workshops and deliver them to your staff throughout the year.
Workshops can be tailored to suit availability; with 3-hour, half-day and full day options at any time of day that will allow the greatest number of staff to attend. One or two hour presentations, or online webinars can also be accommodated to make training more accessible.
Fill us in on what areas you would like help with, and we will deliver workshops to suit. The workshops below are commonly chosen by government organisations looking for training on how to better understand and support rangatahi.
A psycho-social interview for adolescents that structures questions so as to facilitate communication and create a sympathetic, respectful environment where youth may be better able to attain adequate health care.
Trauma is very commonly experienced by young people and they don't have the tools to process it. Get new and evidence-based tecnhiques for spotting signs of trauma and helping them handle it.
Understanding Mental Illness
More and more youth are presenting with anxiety and depression and how this plays out can vary. We help you learn new and better ways of helping and supporting rangatahi who present with these concerns.
Self-Harm & Suicide
Self-harm and suicide are major issues amongst young people. This evidence-based, best-practice workshop will empower you to help a young person who is self-harming or suicidal.
Gender Identity & Rainbow Awareness
How gender is expressed and experienced has changed significantly in recent years. How you respond to these changes has a direct impact on your ability to provide care and support for these youth.
One of the most difficult parts of working with young people is when they become angry or upset. Staff working with youth often encounter this behaviour. We help you understand how it happens and give you tools to handle it.
We address how wellbeing is researched and theorised in academia, and discuss ways that findings can inform work with young people, with a variety of activities, resources and strategies shared.
With more and more children and youth showing signs of developmental challenges, we provide guidance on how to spot these and how to best support the youth themselves, and help their parents navigate it, too.
