Live and On-Demand At-Risk Behaviors Training Program

Increasingly, youth workers are supporting young people with more complex and challenging behaviors. YIPA’s trainings provide relevant information, practical strategies, and skill building approaches that are easy to learn and apply. You’ll find our working with at-risk youth training is immediately helpful to you as a professional youth worker.
Our at-risk behaviors training program webinars are either live online or on-demand, allowing youth workers and organizations to plan training to fit into their schedules. You can choose between traditional webinar or interview-style trainings taught by actual youth workers experienced in working with at-risk youth.

Relevant and Timely Training Topics

You need topics that provide you with the knowledge, skills, and confidence to address risky behaviors. Our working with at-risk youth training program includes topics that help youth workers understand harm reduction, suicide prevention, substance abuse, anti-social behaviors, mental health concerns, and self-sabotaging behaviors.
The goal of our at-risk behaviors training program live online and on-demand webinars and interviews is to provide youth workers a framework for approaching these challenging situations. Through participation in these trainings, you’ll gain confidence and competence in addressing challenging behaviors alongside your organization's specific protocols and policies.
Most of our trainings are 90-minutes long. For most licensing boards, each training web page provides you with everything you need to submit continuing education hours. Once you pass the quiz at the end of the training, you’ll receive a certificate of completion to submit to your board.
YIPA members have free, unlimited access to the live online and on-demand trainings, while non-members can pay a nominal fee for any of the individual training modules. If your organization is not a member, consider joining today!
