Adolescence is a time of rapid growth and change, and because of this, adolescents have their unique therapeutic challenges. This seminar will provide developmentally informed information about common adolescent challenges and what ways providers can better understand and support their teenage clients. Topics will include understanding and assessing adolescent trauma, examining violent or impulsive behavior, understanding how depression may manifest itself in adolescents and how it may be treated, and the challenges adolescents have in navigating a complex relational landscape.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Characterize the intersection of adolescent development and mental health challenges that present themselves in teenage clients with information about assessment and standardized measures that may be helpful and with an examination of what problems might be specific to adolescents and what might persist into adulthood.
- Analyze how depression, anxiety, and other mental health challenges look in adolescent clients and what treatment protocols have been demonstrated to be helpful.
- Interpret violent, aggressive, and acting-out behavior in adolescents to understand better how it may be related to mental health challenges. We will discuss how clinicians can work with adolescents and their caregivers to address these issues.
- Understanding the relationship challenges of adolescents in both friendship, family relationships, and romantic relationships and how that impacts mental health and help-seeking behavior.
