At our Teachers Training (TT) we bring the youth at risk picture into focus by defining these risky behaviors and providing concrete strategies which will equip you to empower your students to make wise choices.
Risk activities have to do with patterns of behavior. These are actions, something that can be seen. It can be described in detail based upon observation.
To change risky behavior requires much more than “telling” them what to do. Change requires knowledge (adequate information), a positive attitude, as well as the skills needed for positive behavior. We need students to know what is right, have the attitude to want to do what is right, and help them practice the skill of doing what is right.
The TT will equip you to bring about change in behavior by teaching on all three levels, knowledge, attitude and skill.
