The Developmental Relationships Workshop: Creating Connections That Help Kids Thrive 

Relationships are too important to leave to chance. Educational success and social-emotional development blossom when caring adults and supportive peers are present in young people’s lives. During the workshop, participants will 

  • Reflect on the things they currently do—and can start to do— to build strong relationships with young people
  • Review findings from studies at Search Institute and elsewhere that demonstrate the connections between strong relationships and strong youth outcomes
  • Understand how developmental relationships build upon Search Institute’s longstanding research on Developmental Assets
  • Consider and discuss the ways that developmental relationships help young people learn to strive to be their best
  • Analyze the five core components of Search Institute’s Developmental Relationships Framework and identify ways to integrate the concepts into their ongoing work with young people
