Building Positive Relationships

This session will examine three areas:

  1. What are the ways to develop a “group” effectively? A group could be formed of preschoolers, colleagues, a family, what are the characteristics of an effective group?
  2. How do we build effective developmental relationships? Young people are more likely to grow up successfully when they experience developmental relationships with important people in their lives.
  3. What can we do to build self confidence in young people? We will examine the three-legged stool of self-confidence, understand the difference between praise and encouragement, and look at practical ways to develop a positive view of self.
