April 2008Vol. 9, No. 3Teen Project Training and Resources

Oregon's Teen Project was created to help promote positive and effective relationships with youth who have experienced abuse and neglect. The Teen Project website provides training curricula and resources for youth workers based on the most current information on adolescent maltreatment. Both the curriculum for trainers and the individualized learning modules are organized into five categories:

  • Adolescent brain development
  • Building relationships with youth
  • Cultural considerations when working with youth
  • Transitions
  • Unique needs of youth

The website also offers a workbook for multidisciplinary team investigations of adolescent abuse and neglect.

The Teen Project is a collaborative effort of the Juvenile Rights Project, Inc., Portland State University School of Social Work, and Oregon's Department of Human Services. Access the curricula and workbook on the website:
