This professional development workshop won’t waste a second of your time. Every minute is filled with strategy after strategy, all designed to prevent or better manage student behavioral, emotional, social and in-school problems.

Teachers, counselors, social workers, psychologists, principals and juvenile court workers have travelled from Japan, Australia, Norway and Guam to attend this one-of-a-kind professional development workshop.

Other youth professionals have cris crossed the U.S. to attend, or braved winter snow storms to attend the Breakthrough Strategies to Teach & Counsel Troubled Youth Workshop. Still other dedicated educators and mental health workers have spent hours stuck in traffic in order to attend, only to later write on their evaluation forms that the class was “still well worth the trip.”

On evaluation forms from educational tutors, substitute teachers, child therapists, after-school workers, residential treatment staff, teaching assistants and others, we sometimes learn that the participant had forfeited a day of pay in order to be able to attend the workshop but that it was “well worth a full day’s pay.” Read attributed workshop reviews here. See Instructor Ruth Herman Wells, M.S. on video.

We believe that you’ll agree that the Breakthrough Strategies to Teach & Counsel Troubled Youth Workshop is the must-have, updated information that you need to best teach, counsel, help and manage even the most challenging, distressed and problem students.
