Adolescent Development Issues and Behavior

Working with youth in any discipline warrants an understanding of how environment, familial, trauma, and social dynamics can affect the developing brain, and is critical to effectively working with adolescents, who experience life stressors very differently than adults do. This 90-minute webinar will incorporate an ecological perspective to understanding the adolescent ‘world,’ review of the neurological foundation and influencing factors that premediates behavior. Content will inform on how providers can support healthy development using effective strategies and interventions that help engage and motivate adolescents toward healthy behavior change in health care and behavioral health settings. 

This training meets the requirements for 1.5 renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and 1.5 initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS)
