The second podcast in my series–A New Take on Opposition in Adolescence–is here!
“The Power inside of Empowerment”
This podcast focuses on taking a close look at the need for mentoring adolescents on power development, assertion and expression. How a direct practice professional teaches skills to youth and supports caregivers and other adults in relationship with adolescents in their life.
The interview you with hear with Ms. S, Behavioral Assistant (BA) who works in the community with adolescents and their families in New Jersey, focuses on her work as a BA; how she handles opposition with the adolescents she works with and guides their parents; her reaction to my ideas regarding the value of opposition and need for mentoring on power assertion and expression in adolescence; and awareness and training for direct practice professionals to assist them in mentoring adolescents and their caregivers on power development in adolescence.
I would love to hear from you regarding your reactions and thoughts about my podcast.
