FAQ – Healthy Dialogue Training Program

1. What courses does the Healthy Dialogue Training Program offer?

Healthy Dialogue (HD) is a cross-generational training course that bridges the intergenerational and cultural gaps among parents, youth, and youth workers, in order to enhance communication effectiveness and minimize potential conflicts and strengthen youth’s well being.

HD helps parents and youth workers understand teens’ unique developmental and psychological needs. When adults learn about teens’ core values and identify reasons behind the uncooperative behavior, they are more likely to communicate with empathy, which is the foundation of effective communication and healthy relationships. 

A series – For Parents

Church leaders or youth workers can use our training material to lead parents small group. A1 course is the prerequisite of A2 course and we strongly recommend that A1 and A2 courses be taken together. 

A1- How Can Parents Have Healthy Dialogue with Their Teen(s)?  

A2- How Can Parents Have Healthy Dialogue with A Youth Worker? 

B series – For Youth Workers

Youth workers can attend a three-hour training and learn from other youth workers.  Then youth workers can use B1 to train members in youth ministry, and use B2 material to guide youth to communicate with their parents.

2. What teaching methods make Healthy Dialogue effective with affordable fees?

We conduct Healthy Dialogue in a combination of ways to equip youth workers and parents with skills and tools to enhance communication with the teenagers

  • On the TalentLMS platform, we provide videos and course materials to help participants understand the core values and issues of youth in today’s culture that may create conflict and communication struggles. 
  • We offer case studies and practical scenarios for church leaders to lead the parent group discussions. Within a supportive small  group setting, participants can learn and understand the roles and responsibilities of parents, teenagers, and youth workers in an effort to improve interaction and communication.
  • We highly recommend inviting Dr. Agnes for a professional Q&A upon the completion of the small group discussion sessions.
  • A three-hour training for youth workers led by Dr. Agnes. Youth workers get the valuable opportunity to learn with other youth workers and their ministries.

Two ways of Group members’ participation:
