Event description
Working with adolescents presenting with “high risk” behaviors can provide a considerable amount of professional anxiety for the clinicians.

About this Event

What behaviors or symptoms should a clinician identify as “high risk”?

What can we do when typical therapeutic rapport strategies and evidenced-based practices do not seem to be making the desired impact?

What are some specific challenges in working with the adolescent population?

This workshop will help clinicians understand what constitute “high risk” behaviors and how to effectively assess clients in order to reduce the inconsistency with interventions that can delay therapeutic progress. Discussion topics will include overlapping drivers for behavior, the struggles of uneven development, as well as inconsistent risk and protective factors. Participants will also examine competing therapeutic priorities and other factors that are impacting the adolescent’s ability to effectively engage in treatment. Participants will also learn helpful strategies and practical treatment techniques rooted in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy that can be implemented in their practice.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:

1. Identify specific behaviors and symptoms that place adolescents at “high risk”

2. Identify differences between suicidal and self-harming (injurious) behavior

3. Identify differences between emotional dysregulation and willful/conduct behaviors

4. Describe adolescent developmental challenges to consider

5. Identify risk factors and protective factors for youth

6. Describe hierarchy of symptoms and difficulties to address when working with adolescents presenting with “high risk” behavior

7. Describe strategies to assess, engage, and treat adolescents and families

8. Engage in specific strategies that incorporate CBT, DBT, and TF-CBT skills to improve therapeutic impact when working with adolescents and their families.
