CONFLICT COACHING

Designed for youth to better understand their feelings and build positive outcomes. Youth can share their side of the story and walk through what they were feeling/experiencing during the time of a particular incident (e.g. major fight with parents, shoplifting).  By understanding your feelings, you will recognize them when they happen in the future and will be able to change your behaviours.  Remember, only you have control of your behaviours.
