The Power Source Professional Training on DVD makes this professional training available to programs across the country when in-person training is not possible. It gives organizations, large and small, the opportunity to conduct a Power Source staff training at any time, review the training when most opportune, and train new employees as they join the staff. It is highly cost effective and ideal for professionals utilizing the Power Source Program with youth at risk.
The training is presented by Bethany Casarjian, Ph.D. and Robin Casarjian, M.A., co-authors of Power Source: Taking Charge of Your Life. It offers the theoretical basis of the program and emphasizes practical clinical tools to increase effectiveness of delivery.
Participants are given a new synthesis of theory and practical skills. The training presents concepts and techniques to end the cycle of high-risk behavior for adolescents and offers approaches to integrate aspects of the Power Source program into individual and group work. This training supports mental health professionals, case workers, teachers, outreach workers, and any other professionals working with highly at-risk adolescents.
