Power Source is amazing and so great for at-risk teens. I recently ran into a girl whom I worked with five years ago.  She STILL had her Power Source book, said it changed her life, and that she would have never graduated from high school and gotten out of her bad environment without it.  Power Source allows these girls to begin to heal and share things that they never have been able to.”  Juvenile Case Worker, Youth Service Bureau

Risk Taking Video

Risk-Taking: Life On The Edge

Programs serving youth at risk actively seek out psycho-educational videos to create a more dynamic and comprehensive treatment approach.

Experience with youth at risk has shown us that the topic of risk-taking is a non-threatening point from which to embark upon the challenging work of self-reflection and creating positive change with young people.  The decision to begin the video series with the topic of risk-taking was influenced by this finding.  Most Power Source groups begin with the risk-taking module.  Providing facilitators with a dynamc video on risk-taking will ensure that member become engaged from the outset.

Powe Source Meditation VideoMeditation: It’s Not What You Think

Programs serving youth at risk actively seek out psycho-educational videos to create a more dynamic and comprehensive treatment approach.

A core component of the Power Source program is meditation.  We think of it as the “quiet motor” that drives the program in terms of creating personal change, managing intense emotions, and facilitating relaxation.  Conducting a meditation at the beginning of the session helps set a relaxed and inner focused tone for the remainder of the group.  This segment presents basic meditation instruction to offer guidance, support and inspiration to facilitators new to the practice of meditation.
