Identification and Clinical Strategies for Working with Co-Occurring Adolescent Disorders

ID: 5068

Current statistics point to rising experimentation, use, and dependency of substances in clients under the age of 25. In fact, this group represents the largest growing segment of the population seeking treatment for substance abuse. Treatment providers struggle to keep up with current trends in both use and treatment and are often unsuccessful in engaging this population. Using case studies and a highly experiential format, participants will learn how to identify adolescents and young adults at risk for substance abuse, common substances of abuse, and strategies to engage the adolescent, family, and community for successful treatment outcomes.

Play Therapy Techniques that You Can Use Today

ID: 5659

Play is the language of the child. Attempting to assess and treat children in a primary talk therapy modality can be difficult for the client and the clinician. Play therapy is growing in popularity in the mental health professions, and is recognized as an effective means of addressing many developmental and psychological issues of children and adolescents. In this workshop, play and art techniques for assessment, intervention, and termination in individual, group and family therapy will be presented through lecture, experientially, and through case discussion. The presenter will discuss what the most basic play therapy materials needed are and provide cost-effective strategies for making or obtaining the basic tools. Participants will leave the workshop prepared with the information, enthusiasm, and confidence to start using play techniques immediately. APT Approved Provider 11-300

Practical Social Skills Workshop for Children and Students with Developmental Disabilities

ID: 3267

This workshop will focus on the practical skills needed to help children and adolescents with developmental disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders. The goal in this workshop is to teach about practical socialization skills in individual and group settings to do such things as: build friendships, transfer acquaintances to friendship relationships, avoiding behaviors that may serve to distance possible relationships as well as appropriate skills necessary for the real world. In additions, we will discuss what works in applications from instruction with social skills and what may not create difficulty from instruction to "real world" application.
