Guided Problem Soving

Family Visitation

Guided Problem Solving, offered in Transylvania County, is a one-on-one service for at-risk youth to develop skills in conflict resolution, anger control, problem solving, and moral reasoning through structured activities and conversation.   A mediator/facilitator meets individually with youth for 8 to 12 sessions to build skills and address specific issues.  At the beginning of the process, youth develop goals for addressing challenges and learning skills.

Guided Problem Solving can address issues with academic performance, school attendance, peer relationships, parent/teacher relationships, and frequent suspensions.

To participate in Guided Problem Solving, youth must meet risk criteria.  Referring professionals can get in touch us at to learn more about risk criteria.

In situations where a youth is involved in a conflict with another person, Youth Mediation is more appropriate.
