610.W Youth Treatment in Practice: A Community and Motivational Approach

Proper assessment and engagement of at risk youth is critical if we are to make meaningful and lasting impacts. The interventions and techniques covered in this workshop have been used successfully in outpatient, residential, and drug-court settings, among others. Participants will learn the skills needed to help young people address substance use, increase social stability, improve their mental health, and improve overall life satisfaction. Family components of care will also be reviewed. Various assessment tools will be provided, along with skill building and role-plays using motivational and cognitive-behavioral approaches. This workshop draws heavily from the Adolescent Community Reinforcement Approach (A-CRA), a well-tested youth and family evidence-based practice.
