Training Overview:

If America can’t decide what to make of the Millennial generation, neither can our mental health and addiction professionals. Millennials are the most misunderstood cohort and are harshly critiqued by older generations and society at large. The continuous disapproval that Millennials experience can lead to heightened dual-diagnosis symptoms which requires a specialized approach. It is clear that Millennials need a tailored approach to best meet their unique needs and this workshop will provide that exclusive information. Attendees will learn about the intensified stress, depression, anxiety, sexual problems, substance abuse and suicidal ideation while learning how to best address these issues effectively with 18-38-year olds.

Learning Objectives:

1) Attendees will be able to identify the top five stressors that Millennials face within society and how these stressors lead to increased co-occurring symptoms.

2) Attendees will have an in-depth understanding of the cutting-edge Millennial research

3) Attendees will learn how to effectively implement the research into their practice to increase treatment outcomes.
