Do you work with adolescents and are searching for valuable perspectives and tangible mental health interventions? Adolescents require unique therapeutic engagement and relational strategies to ensure maximum treatment engagement and success. This training will begin with a summary of adolescent psychosocial development, elements of clinical case conceptualization, and present key recommendations for increasing engagement with this age group. The use of Motivational Interviewing skills will be highlighted to encourage MI skill-based dialogue with youth around substance use. Practical clinical interventions to address anxiety and mood disorders will be presented from the therapeutic models of CBT, DBT and ACT. Video demonstrations and case studies will encourage learners to evaluate best practices in mental health treatment for adolescents and provide a wide range of therapeutic options to use immediately with this group.

By Attending Our Workshop, You Will Be Able To:

  • Discover a broad understanding of adolescent mental health issues and influences of psychosocial development on substance use, anxiety, and depression.
  • Explain how the spirit of Motivational Interviewing enhances adolescent engagement around discussions related to substance use.
  • Recognize the unique treatment needs of each adolescent client to formulate treatment strategies and interventions.
  • Plan and implement intervention strategies that are evidenced-based, stress practicality, and engage the adolescent client.
  • Name at least five concrete clinical therapeutic interventions that are appropriate and recommended for use with adolescent clients.
