Trainer: Katherine Coleman, LPC, LCADC, CCS
From a developmental perspective, adolescence is a time of gaining independence, experimentation, and taking risks. One area of experimentation associated with adolescence is substance use. Clinicians working with adolescents who use or are “at risk” of using and/or abusing substances need to understand the scope of the problem and ways to effectively work with this population. This workshop will provide attendees with up-to-date information on adolescent substance abuse drug trends and suggestions for clinical work. This workshop is designed to expand understanding and awareness of trending substance use amongst youth and develop competencies surrounding identification and entry into treatment. Current trends in substance use will be discussed to provide additional insight into potential risk factors. Participants will be able to understand what clinical factors contribute to substance use or substance use prevention.
