PARTH: Practice that makes a difference for young people
This workshop introduces the PARTH model: an approach to providing meaningful support for young people who experience complex challenges. The model emerged out of the findings of the Pathways to Resilience and Successful Youth Transitions studies. These studies investigated the service use experiences of young people (statutory and NGOs: welfare, youth justice, mental health and education support services); their key transitions; and their perspectives on what constituted meaningful support from formal services and from informal networks including family, peers, and community (see youthsay.co.nz for more information). The presentation explores each of the core elements of the PARTH model and their application in practice. It will provide participants with an opportunity to reflect on how the PARTH model could inform their own work with young people.
