Youth Services

The Enabling Youth Programme is delivered over 10 - 15 sessions. Generally the sessions are of one hour duration, one day per week. It was established to assist at risk Youth/Rangatahi aged between 11 and 24 years of age.

The programme was developed with a vision to work alongside Youth, who are challenged with abusive/violent behaviours. This programme deals with numerous issues such as:

  • Lack of self esteem.
  • Substance abuse.
  • Relationship management.
  • Difficulty with Life skills.
  • Difficulty with problem solving techniques.
  • Coping with grief and loss.
  • Unsure of Safety planning.
  • Turning self defeating beliefs into rational helpful beliefs.

Delivery

  • Individual programmes are delivered by practitioners who have extensive expertise working with violent perpetrators and challenging youth.
  • There is a comprehensive assessment process, that allows an opportunity to identify the individual requirements of each client including cultural and support areas. In addition, it provides a framework that assists in determining whether the programme is the most compatible intervention tool to meet the young person’s needs.
  • Personal Development and Education Plans are an important feature of our programme. They focus on the goals of the young person and assist in  ‘staircasing’ them towards achieving their identified goals. If deemed appropriate, a collaborative process is also undertaken, which may include liaising with other agencies.
