Online Training Modules for Service Providers

Promoting Positive Pathways to Adulthood Training ModulesPromoting Positive Pathways to Adulthood is a series of 10 free online training modules for service providers who work with transition-age youth. These modules are designed to increase skills in engaging and supporting youth and young adults in the transition years who have mental health challenges. All modules were updated in 2019 to incorporate new research findings and resources. A brief description of the content of each module is available in our informational brochure.

Each module is accompanied by a reference and resource list, a glossary, a transcript, and practice exercises to help participants with applying skills in situations similar to those they encounter in their work with youth, young adults, and families.

Participants will be able to download a certificate for one hour of continuing education credit (CEU) or a certificate of completion for each successfully completed module. NOTE: CEUs will be offered for completion of the modules until September 30, 2020.

Two additional resources are available to complement the Online Modules: the Pathways Transition Training Toolkit, designed for use by work teams, and the Pathways Transition Training Toolkit version 2, a self-study guide for individual service providers. These toolkits invite participants to apply their learning to practice in their local context with practice scenarios and video segments and exercises for further exploration of topics.

Pathways Transition Video Briefs

Promoting Positive Pathways to Adulthood Training ModulesThis series of short video trainings provide brief overviews of key concepts and skills for working with youth and young adults with mental health needs. The 5-6 minute video briefs feature presentations by service providers and youth advocates and are accompanied by practice-oriented discussion questions and links to relevant resources for further learning. A survey of transition service providers' needs and preferences conducted in collaboration with Youth MOVE National provided guidance for our selection of topics. The first five video briefs focus on trauma-informed care, youth cultures, engaging youth in treatment, promoting family support, and shared decision making. The second five video briefs cover working with Native American youth, supporting young people as they form adult relationships, working with LGBTQ youth, collaborating with peer support providers, and supporting youth advocacy.
