11/18/19 PFPC Week 4: Session four was all about relationships and influences. The youth worked as a group to develop a list of important role models in their lives and discussed the influence that they provide. The youth then created an image of their best friend and shared why they value that person they described.
The caregiver session focused on encouraging positive relationships in their youth’s life and identifying community resources where youth can continue to build relationships. Expectations related to behavior when with friends and when outside the home were reinforced during this session.
Our favorite part of this session was the Cooperation game. A task that seemed so easy in theory was much more difficult when you had multiple people involved. Once we developed a strategy and let one person vocally announce the plan one step at time, we were successful with getting the hoola-hoop to the ground.
