Practical Techniques and Strategies for Coaching Children and Teens

Approved by NASW, NH Chapter, for 6 Cat. 1 CE Credits, Auth. #2558

Building a coaching practice involves practical arrangements of time, place and context. This is a “how-to” seminar where the techniques of coaching will be placed within the context of a coaching practice. You’ll look at specific strategies and techniques such as: listening, goal-setting, opening, expanding and focusing discourse, questioning techniques, transfer of training, relapse prevention, consultation and termination. You’ll review record-keeping systems and forms such as coaching information sheets, parental consent, and session notes. You’ll discuss assessment of child and parent needs, goal-setting and re-setting, and making and remaking agreements for how to work together. Ethical issues will also be addressed.

(This is part of the Coaching Children and Teens and the Coaching Children and Teens with ADHD Certificate Programs, but you do not need to enroll in the programs to take this workshop.)
