5/6/19 Week 10: This week’s session was all about social and emotional competence. In the youth session we talked about expected behaviors/boundaries and protective factors. Parents learned about the opioid warning signs and ways to communicate with their youth when they have concerns. The family session was very interesting as participants did a role play activity in which youth took on the role of parents and parents took on the role of youth.
After difficult conversation role play exercise, a participating youth said that now he understood how his mom feels (as a result of mom acting like her child when she asks him to get off his phone).
