In this video, you’ll learn:

  • How our inner voice develops and helps us navigate the world based on our learning history
  • Two fun, simple exercises you can do with young people (in groups or one-on-one settings) to help them become aware of their own Advisers
  • How to successfully pitch exercises and ideas in order to get young clients on board
  • Why simply forcing yourself to think positively isn’t the answer to critical self-talk
  • A key skill you can teach young people to help them engage with their Adviser in a more useful way

A personal note about the course from Louise Hayes and Joseph Ciarrochi:

There are so many aspects of young people’s experiences that we can’t change — no matter how much we might want to.

We can’t erase the past or anticipate the future.

We can’t shield them from hardship or even get rid of the difficult emotions or thoughts they might have.

But, with the right tools, we can change the way young people relate to their experiences.

To do this, we need evidence-based therapies that are accessible to this age group and directly consider their developmental context.

That’s why we created DNA-V, and it’s why we’re providing a comprehensive introduction to the model in our new online course.

After taking this training, you’ll be equipped with a model that’s intuitive for practitioners and clients alike, and will have a toolset that allows you to help young people gain insight into their own minds and bodies and respond more flexibly to life’s challenges.

And, using what they care about as a compass, you’ll be able to redirect their passion, emotionality, and ability to live in the moment like water in a river, siphoning energy into behaviors that will help them grow instead of amplifying loneliness and despair. 

In other words, you’ll be able to alter the way they engage with the world, with themselves, and with others, and give them the lifelong skills they need to thrive.

And, in the end, isn’t that everything?

We could not be more excited to share this training with the mental health community. 

Enjoy the sneak peek, and we hope you’ll join us inside the course when the doors open.
