We believe that the best way to succeed in our goal of preparing youth for parenting is to empower fellow professionals with tools, training and conceptual framework to deliver our programs effectively. ESP’s programs for professionals meet the needs of practitioners in all aspects of teen health and wellness education.
New Frontiers For Healthy Families
ESP’s “New Frontiers for Healthy Families” is a 1-2 hour presentation for professionals including social workers, psychologists, health educators, healthcare professionals, youth program leaders and mentors.
This workshop introduces attendees to a paradigm shift and ESP’s conceptual framework. The founder, Randi Rubenstein, describes the innovative aspects of ESP’s programs and the program components. Drawing upon ESP’s experience in conducting over 100 programs for more than 2,000 teens, the founder is able to share unique insights into teen perspectives, the programs’ successes, and lessons learned.
Professionals gain valuable information and skills to assist with communication, assessment, and case management. ESP’s pilot data and bibliographic references are also provided.
Testimonials from professionals about ESP’s New Frontiers presentation
I learned how to connect with youth to help them plan.
I learned so much! I love the Paradigm Shift. So non-threatening, interactive, and collaborative.
I will be changing my approach and words in discussing parenting with youth. I am also going to be encouraging staff and foster parents and youth to attend this class!!
