Getting Relationships Right: Helping Young People Strive to be Their Best through Developmental Relationships

Kent Pekel, Ed.D.Presented by Kent Pekel, Ed.D., President and CEO at Search Institute, on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, 12PM - 1PM, CDT.

Search Institute has launched a major, multi-year effort to develop strategies and techniques to build positive relationships with kids. The institute's first studies have identified five common characteristics of developmental relationships through which kids learn to strive to be their best. These qualities are

  • Express care
  • Challenge growth
  • Provide support
  • Share power
  • Expand possibilities
During the Getting Relationships Right webinar, participants will learn practical ways to put these concepts into practice while strengthening motivation, persistence, and other skills that are essential for success in school and beyond.

Routines and rituals. We--and our kids--both love them and hate them. They create memories and make life more predictable and stable. Yet they can sometimes feel more like ruts and obligations. Like other research, Search Institute's American Family Assets Study highlights the power of routines and rituals, such as family meals and traditions, in strengthening families and contributing to young people's development. By participating in this webinar, you will learn:

  • The important roles that family routines, rituals, and shared experiences play in family and youth well-being, even in the midst of today's complicated schedules and families.
  • Key elements of positive routines that make a difference for kids and families.
  • Practical ideas to create or enhance family routines and rituals to keep them meaningful as young people grow up.
  • Creative ways that people who work with families can reinforce (or help to foster) family routines and shared activities in ways that enrich family life.
This is the second webinar in a five-part series that examines the practical implications of family strengths, based on The American Family Assets Study.
