Join our experts for eye-opening discussions of: sensitive parent education, revealing interview questions, hidden architectural updates, kid-friendly consent role-plays, and support of healthy time off.
The only risk management video that elucidates our universal human vulnerability to cross boundaries with young people. Guidelines for safe touch and safe talk (covered in Part I of this series) are only half of the child welfare and protection picture. Youth leaders must also look inward to recognize the unhealthy seeds of secrets, rule-bending, favoritism, over-sharing. A must-see sequel.
Young people are curious about everything, so they naturally pose challenging questions to youth leaders they trust. But knowing how to respond supportively and appropriately takes finesse. Hosts Jaha-Echols and Thurber offer elegant ways to respond to youngsters’ questions about sex, drugs, religion, politics, racism, and stereotypes with respect, calm, and an open mind.
