Session

This session will provide practical insights and lessons on how new research into youth mentoring and coaching can help practitioners use emotions-focused mentoring and coaching in their practice.

The session looks at the research’s proposed Holding-Containing-Attunement Model that demonstrates how a person-centered youth mentoring and coaching approach can play a major role in promoting adolescent thriving. It provides a framework for practitioners to use mentoring and coaching practices in their field of work to address emotional well-being. The study was conducted with practitioners, exploring their practice and realities, therefore the session will look at putting the research findings into practice, whether attendees are youth practitioners or practicing mentoring and coaching with adults.
