Nearly every teenager experiences crisis at some point while they are in your ministry. Therefore, we believe every youth worker needs training on helping teenagers in crisis. In this 4-session Cartel Course learners will cover the basics. We’ll start with an overview of understanding the developmental stage of adolescence. Next, we’ll help you define and recognize what a crisis actually is in the life of a teenager because that’s not as easy as it sounds! Adults often minimize the smaller crises in teenagers’ lives; but we’re called to walk alongside teenagers no matter whether their perception of their crisis aligns with ours or not. Third, we’ll work on some skills that you need to appropriately respond to a teenager in crisis. Finally, we’ll help you learn how to recognize and respond to a crisis that’s too big for you to handle on your own, when to ask for help, and know when you need to report something to the proper people.
