Collaborative Session of HEALTH & ASSET- "Understanding Adolescents and Empathizing Youth Voices" on Saturday, March 10, 2012

Dear Members,

It is a pleasure to inform you that this month HEALTH and ASSET are
organizing a collaborative session on adolescent and its issues, the
theme of the session is Understanding Adolescents and Empathizing
Youth Voices. Adolescent phase is a very important and challenging
phase in relation to development of a child, as it is a transition from
childhood to adult hood and child passes through physical,
psychological and social behaviour changes. For parents and teachers
it is essential to understand this phase and deal with the related issues
effectively.  Moreover, empathize youth voices.

By the end of the workshop teachers will be able to:
- Understand adolescence and their issues.
- Explore the world from an adolescent’s perspective.
- Know ways to help adolescents in coping with the flux of change they
  go through
- Learn a paradigm shift from a deficit model to a value and asset model
  of youth development
