RAP Workshop Christchurch
RAP provides a powerful alternative to both punitive and permissive approaches. Young persons are enlisted as responsible agents in positive change. RAP deals with problems by focusing on strengths and solutions. Brief “teaching moments” instill positive behaviors and values. Rather than enforcing obedience, RAP sets high expectations for youth to take responsibility and show respect for themselves and others.
RAP is useful for all who are concerned with youth, whether professionals or lay persons. This course is well-received by educators, counselors, social workers, psychologists, youth workers, and staff in treatment and juvenile justice settings. Training also can include parents, foster parents, mentors, and mature youth who are peer helpers.
