Seminar Focuses on Methods for Empowering Teens

5/10/2005:   The Youth Advocacy Center invites professionals who work with teenagers to participate in its training Socrates in Foster Care, June 13-14 in New York City. The training presents methods for empowering teens to take responsibility and plan for their future. The Youth Advocacy Center has tried and tested these methods for more than a decade in its Getting Beyond the System seminars.

Training facilitator Paul Pitcoff works with no more than 20 professionals at a time in an interactive learning environment where trainees learn to reinforce teens' critical thinking and problem solving skills, both of which will "help them achieve their professional and personal goals," Pitcoff says.

The National Association of Social Workers has approved Socrates in Foster Care to account for 14 continuing education credits. The cost to register is $200 before May 15, and $245 thereafter. To learn more and to download an application, visit www.youthadvocacycenter.org/training/upcoming.html.
