Phone not available
This webinar will present two nationally recognized, research-based, gender responsive support group models - Girls Circle and The Council for Boys and Young Men - that have proven results across all sectors with a 20-year history in both prevention and intervention settings nationwide.

The theoretical foundation of these model programs is steeped in evidence-based principles that include brain science, resilience, strengths-based positive youth development, trauma, culturally responsive principles, and motivational interviewing practices that stimulate critical thinking and moral reasoning within a gender responsive framework.

Participants will be able to identify the two models' evidence-based outcomes, successful implementation guidelines, and resources including training, manual-guided curriculum, and Q&A tools, and learn how these programs can meet the needs of youth across sectors through a multi-systemic, sustainable approach.

Date Created: February 3, 2021
