Worlds Apart: What Works in Adolescent Treatment and Why

May 3 @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm

2023 LRADAC Training Calendar

Sometimes adolescents seem to come from an entirely different world, and in some regards, they do! There has been a wealth of recent discoveries about adolescent development, connection, and learning. Unfortunately, there is frequently a disconnect between what we know works best with adolescents and the treatment modalities we use when working with them. This session reviews recent research and discoveries and explores how to best apply that knowledge to treat adolescents with a strong emphasis on practical application.
