Resource Poor or Rich?: Asset Building to Provide Behavioral Health Services for Children, Youth and Families in Rural Communities

August 28, 2013 from 3:00 PM to 4:30 PM Eastern Time (ET)

Event Type: Webinar

This webinar will focus on practical strategies for harnessing the assets that exist within rural communities and among families, children and youth to address behavioral health needs and well-being. By emphasizing the principles of family-driven and youth-guided approaches, presenters will discuss the importance of meaningful integration of these principles into the delivery of services and programs in rural communities. The webinar will highlight the wraparound/advocacy model utilized by Youth Advocate Programs, Inc., in working with cross-system involved youth and families in its upstate New York locations, including a tribal community. The webinar will also highlight time banking as a strategy for effective asset building in a rural community in northern California. Time banking is a reciprocal service exchange where community members share time for services, where each hour of service is valued the same. Presenters will discuss the efforts of two rural communities to identify and maximize community assets.
