Research shows that just one trusted adult can have a profound effect on a child's life, influencing that young person toward positive growth, greater engagement in school and community activities, better overall health, and prevention of risky and threatening behaviors.
Those of us who guide or mentor adolescents must understand how to build trust with young people while simultaneously establishing boundaries that keep the relationship healthy. In clear, accessible terms, One Trusted Adult lays out: - The critical nature of trust, along with simple tools that help build trusting relationships with young people and expand the opportunities for positive impact - What boundaries are and how to set clear expectations that keep both young people and the adults who work with them safe - How to create an organizational culture that cares for the whole child and celebrates the adults who get it right while holding accountable those who don't - Ways to partner and surround young people with the only thing better than one trusted adult: many trusted adults! Packed with real-life stories and invaluable tips, One Trusted Adult inspires all adults to build strong connections, embrace sustainable career practices, break the silence around boundary violations and abuse, be present for the young people in their lives-and, in doing so, ensure that the young people in their care are growing into their greatest potential. One Trusted Adult proves why every young person needs one 1/4 and provides teaching and guidance on how every adult can be one." Upon registration, a book will be sent to you.
