Young Adults 'Be Empowered!' Workshop

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In this workshop, attendees will identify their personal motivators and leave empowered to approach therapy with strength and determination. This room will be a ‘no negativity zone’ where we will focus on our strengths and abilities! The panel will share how personal motivation helped them in treatment, and young adults will be encouraged to share their own treatment successes and proud moments. Attendees will be asked to discuss a recent ‘failure;’ through role-playing, panelists will turn that ‘failure’ into a positive learning experience.
