STRIVE Family Mediation Training

April 26, 2018 - April 27, 2018

New Training Workshop!
STRIVE Family Mediation Training
(Support To Reunite, Involve, and Value Each Other)

The CT Coalition to End Homelessness is partnering with UCLA to bring this innovative approach to prevent and help end youth homelessness through the use of the STRIVE mediation model. We are excited to offer a new two-day training workshop for Connecticut youth providers to become trained in STRIVE mediation for youth. STRIVE mediation training is a two-day workshop where you will be trained by Connecticut’s very own STRIVE trainers as well as the Director of Training at UCLA’s Nathanson Family Resistance Center, Dr. Susanna Lopez, and her team.

April 26 & 27

Project Strive is a family-centered psycho-educational mediation model designed to reduce youth homelessness and increase family stability. Initially developed at UCLA in 2004, this five-session intervention targets newly homeless youth and their families and has been found to increase positive family interactions while providing family members with tools to address conflict more effectively. This program also has proven results in reducing youth risk-taking behaviors and improving participant’s general wellness.
