Workshop Descriptions

Day 1: Adolescent Development and Effectively Engaging/Retaining Adolescents to Treatment

Day 1 of the Adolescent Treatment Learning Series will provide participants with information on adolescent development, including the brain, with the goal of how such knowledge can positively influence treatment engagement and retention. Topics to be covered will include typical and atypical adolescent developmental milestones, brain development, gender-based development, as well as developmental risk and protective factors. Further, the training will discuss effective methods for increasing engagement and retention of adolescents (and their families) in treatment and ways to decrease attrition. Topics will include increasing the social validity of treatment programs for adolescents and their families, implementing motivational incentives for attendance and participation, decreasing barrier to treatment access, and ways to implement cultural norms that promote treatment participation.

Day 2: Evidence-based Screening and Assessment for Adolescents and the Use of Technology

Day 2 of the Learning Series will provide participants with information on ways to effectively use evidence-based tools to screen, assess, and diagnose adolescent substance use disorders. Topics will include differences between screening and assessment, making use of self-report, semi-structured interviews, and biological measures (e.g. drug screening). Participants will learn about available technologies that can be used during their service provision to include screening, assessment, diagnosis, and treatment. Best practices, as well as ethical and legal considerations will be covered. The discussion will also highlight available hardware and software for telehealth service provision. Further, the training will discuss effective ways to implement health services information into existing treatment programs for adolescents.
