Staff Development and Technical Assistance
Consistent with our goal to promote competent care for youth through professional development of the youth work field, our research is focused on three areas: daily practice, staff development and professional development. Our studies have been widely disseminated in professional journals and publications, and our resource library is one of the most comprehensive in the United States.
Based on the above research and years of experience, we provide technical assistance for organizations and youth workers. Dozens of agencies have utilized this service to improve their programs and practices for youth and youth workers. Curriculum development, supervision, teamwork, relationship building, staff development, recreation activities, conflict resolution, and the design and implementation of learning and therapeutic environments are a few of the areas in which we work with organizations.
