Topic: Identifying Child Abuse & Neglect, and Mental Health Needs in Tweens and Teens

Description: Navigating the tween and teen years can be challenging in normal times, couple that with a pandemic and youth are at an even greater risk. Adults are often at a loss when trying to determine if a youth is exhibiting challenging behaviors as a result of trauma, mental health concerns, or normal teenage rebellion. Child abuse and neglect is often a hidden problem. Youth at this age who have grown up in abusive situations may not recognize it and think that it is normal. Others may be afraid, embarrassed, or blame themselves. People who work with youth can play a critical role in helping to mitigate these challenges and build resilience.

Who should attend: human service professionals, educators, interested community members, anyone who works with youth.

Social Work and MCBAP CEUs available for $8. The training is free for those who do not need CEUs. The CEU fee is refundable if cancelled within two days of the event minus the eventbrite fee. Scholarships available for those who live and work in Ottawa county. Please email swilliams@arborcircle.org to request a scholarship.
