Identifying and Changing Criminal Behavior in Youth

July 12, 2010: Free workshop presented by Kinship Center Education Institute and Hartnell Community College

Former 27-year prison inmate Nelson Kowalkczyk has designed and implemented programs in prison, juvenile facilities and community centers that help parents and others understand criminal thinking errors in youth. On Monday, July 12, Kowalkczyk will present two workshops at Kinship Center headquarters in Salinas on techniques for identifying and changing criminal behavior.

Workshop #1: From 10:00 – 12:00, Kowalkczyk will talk with caregivers, parents and youth
Workshop #2: From 12:30 – 2:30 pm, Kowalkczyk will talk with professionals

Topics will include holding youth accountable for their actions, what to listen to (and not listen to) when youth are talking, defensive tactics that keep substance users from changing, the fear of losing face…and much more.

To pre-register for either free workshop, call (831) 443-0662, or click here for the registration form. Walk-ins will be accepted as room permits.
