2.0 CEU's

Presented by Tracy Rowe LISW-S Registered Play Therapist

Course CEDL.0126.2.0

At TCS, we often inactivate clients after they graduate. However, if you are choosing to continue working with clients in this age group, you might find they have unique and often overwhelming challenges. This training will address challenges faced by this age group, as well as techniques for assisting clients in this group. Individuals with disabilities often face difficulties with managing services and systems after graduation from high school. This training will additionally address ways to advocate for clients and assist them with finding resources to meet their unique needs. 2 CEUs will be awarded for those who attend the entire presentation and return an evaluation form.

Learning Objectives:

 

  • Identify unique challenges facing this age group, especially those with disabilities.

 

  • Increase awareness of resources and ways to use these resources to help clients with
    unique needs.

 

  • Know at least 2 techniques for engaging and managing common issues with young
    adults.
