Guiding Youth through the Challenges of Puberty & Gender-Confusion
RECORDED: OCTOBER 26, 2022
Presented by Mary Anne Mosack, Pres./CEO, Ascend & Peggy Pecchio, Executive Director, Operation Keepsake
Now more than ever, as youth endure a barrage of confusing and often aggressive messages about gender, it is critical that SRAE facilitators renew their focus to intentionally address the physical, emotional, and social aspects of puberty with adolescents. The increasing number of gender-confused youth in our programs compels us to help all youth navigate this emotionally chaotic period of change with sound information and critical-thinking skills for healthy decision-making. Join us for this SRAE Edge webinar in which we will discuss the research and rhetoric surrounding gender identity issues, and how SRAE facilitators can equip youth to develop the skills and mindset to evaluate and respond to the ideologically charged messages they receive on this issue.
Recognizing & Responding to Trauma in the SRAE Classroom
RECORDED: AUGUST 17, 2022
Presented by Dana Bowling, LMHC, & Tracey Pike, Executive Director, Ascend
Don’t miss this dynamic combination of experts in the mental health and SRA education fields to expand your SRAE toolkit with knowledge, compassion, and practical strategies. This webinar will offer insights into understanding how trauma negatively impacts the physical and emotional health of adolescents and the importance of integrating a trauma-informed approach into SRAE curricula presentations. In addition to sharing the knowledge that can help identify trauma-exposed youth, this webinar will offer real-life applications that SRAE facilitators can use to create safe physical and social environments to effectively reach youth impacted by trauma.
Presented by Tracey Pike, Executive Director, Ascend
Trigger Warning: This webinar may increase positive outcomes among youth! SRAE facilitators will learn practical techniques to apply science of hope concepts and strategies to curricula presentations. Hope is not merely wishful thinking. Youth can learn how to follow pathways that can actualize hope as an internal asset. They can be empowered toward achieving goals that seemed out of reach in their lived experience. Just as SRAE facilitators should be trauma-informed, they should also be hope-informed presenters.
