10 The First Stage of RAP - Connecting
The human brain has programs that motivate us to connect to others. Young people connect to adults and peers who meet their needs. Respect Trust Empowerment Understanding

11 The Private Logic of Adult Wary Kids – Barriers to Connection
FIGHT – HURT OR BE HURT Threat display: I am dangerous Power display: I am the boss Pay back: I’ll make them suffer FLIGHT: HIDE OR BE HURT Isolate: Shut out people Retreat: Shut out the pain Escape: I can’t take any more FOOL: OUTSMART THEM Deceiving: Charm and disarm Diversion: Act dumb and crazy Mind games: Insult and provoke FOLLOW: BAND TOGETHER Peer power: Follow friends Alpha Power: Follow the leader Contagion: Follow the crowd

12 Bidding To Connect We need to recognise when kids make bids to connect with us.

No matter how hard I try, I always fail. Minimising and Mislabeling Everyone does it so what’s the big deal? So I slapped her around – she’s just a ho! Self-centred If I see something I like, it’s mine. Why should I care? I take care of myself.

A Sample Generosity Script Thank you for helping out.
