Creating Opportunities for Youth to Share, Kate Hyde and Caroline Ainsworth – Video and Discussion Outline
Kate Hyde and Caroline Ainsworth Hughes offer ways to create opportunities for youth to share with YMI’s founding director, Skip Masback.
Questions for Discussion:
What kinds of safe spaces do we provide for our youth to wonder, to question, and to share?
How do we ensure the safety of the space? Are we being explicit about boundaries (and are we confident enough in doing that, and trained to do that)?
Have we experienced “serial dumping”? What can we do to mitigate that? If it occurs, what can we do to continue to foster trust, but channel these youths’ needs appropriately? How can we first validate and then refer?
