Value and Vitality for Young People

A masterclass on helping young people find meaning

Course Description

A key question that comes from professionals who support young people is:

How can I make values come alive?

How do I get beyond, I don’t know or I don’t care? This difficulty answering makes sense from a developmental point of view. Valuing requires us to have language and create self-made rules and actions, such as – How do I want to be in the world? Where do I want my future direction to go? How do I want to interact with others?

If a young person has little experience thinking and speaking in this way, values is a new landscape. And, even if a young person does know some answers, adolescence is a time when those answers will change dramatically. Who we are, what we want, and how we can fit in are concepts that never stand still.

With developmental insights and a theoretical understanding of values, you can change your work and make it come alive. The research on values shows that it is a powerful way to change lives, and it matters that we adapt this to young people.

This workshop will give you practical tools and exercises so you can help young people consider what matters, speak about it, and act on it.

You will learn steps to:

  • Build vitality and knowing why it is important
  • Use values ‘light’ activities to start your work
  • Make values the context for all of your work
  • Use clear examples and give you explicit exercises that you can implement.
  • Enjoy growing and discovering what young people value together.

You will rarely again ask, ‘What do you value?’.

Who is this for:

The workshop will suit professionals working with young people in all settings, including coaching, education, and counselling.
