Lunch and Learn for Atlanta Professionals and Community

Caron Atlanta is a key resource for individuals and families who have been touched by addiction, as well as health and education professionals in our community. We invite you to join us for a series of workshops that equip teachers, behavioral healthcare providers, and youth-serving professionals with the skills needed to prevent problematic substance use.

FREE Virtual Event - During this interactive learning session, participants will gain a deeper understanding of strength-based approaches to facilitating and building resiliency skills in youth. The 40 Developmental Assets and The Developmental Relationship Framework developed by the Search Institute will be presented as a starting point for exploring how we might be more intentional in reflecting on and strengthening relationships with young people.

Participants will:

  • Identify characteristics of resiliency and strategies for how it can be built over time.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of how the 40 Developmental Assets framework can be applied to enhance your organization’s approaches towards boosting resilience in youth.
  • Learn how the Developmental Relationships Framework can be applied to strengthen their impact with youth.
  • Identify books and other resources centered about developing resiliency skills in youth.
