Motivational Interviewing: Trauma-Informed Applications to Youth

November 2 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Designed for CASA staff and volunteers, this 2-hour training will provide an overview of the key concepts and methods from motivational interviewing as applied to adolescents who have experienced foster care in the context of their relationship with CASA volunteers. Specific goals will include decreasing the tendency of CASA volunteers to provide unwanted, corrective advice to foster youth and instead integrating more frequent and high quality open questions, affirmations, and reflections. Trauma-informed principles will be infused throughout the training which will include lecture, audio or video clips, and breakout group exercises.

This webinar is brought to you by California Court Appointed Special Advocates Association’s webinar training program 2022. To register for the training, please use the following link:
