September 17, 2020
12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this webinar for clinicians, we will discuss the apparent changes in American adolescent mental health, and how they arguably relate to socio-historical shifts. While the factors are divergent, all of them impact caretakers’ and adolescents’ biological imperative to seek connections to others and to achieve physical, emotional, and existential/spiritual well-being.
As a result, relational issues in adolescents seeking care, regardless of diagnosis and suspected etiology, are an accessible and increasingly useful aspect of treatment, one that is compatible with various levels of care and treatment modalities.
Attendees will learn to recognize generationally specific barriers to health and address challenges in adolescent differential diagnosis, as well as better understand attachment theory and how it might inform and guide clinical treatment.
CE credit(s) available for clinical professionals, psychologists, therapists, counselors, and social workers. Please email email@example.com for additional continuing education details.
