Christina Medvescek


February 13, 2020

2:00 PM ET / 1:00 PM CT / 12:00 PM MT / 11:00 AM PT


The focus of this webinar is on Connection Circles – a researched-based “listening conversation” that amplifies the voice of youth while teaching communication and conflict resolution skills.  


The Connection Circles program was offered to youth in special housing due to extreme trauma and high on the ACE scale.  The program worked exceptionally well and had a positive impact on the teens involved.  


Don't miss the opportunity to hear about this exciting work!
