This asynchronous on-demand training reviews four trends relative to today’s adolescents and explains their impact on behavioral health practice. Learners are presented with research that explains why developmental theories have extended adolescence to 25 years old, including implications for working with individuals who are legally adults yet developmentally still within adolescence. The training provides insight into today’s adolescents’ diverse social experiences, including navigating living in a hybrid (online and in-person) environment. Unique stressors are explored, with reflection on current mental health trends for adolescents, before considering today’s adolescents’ generational identity and how it may contribute to resilience. To extend this information, learners are provided key implications for behavioral health practice and developmentally appropriate screening tools to support work with 21st century adolescents.
This course is available online as an interactive, reading based asynchronous webinar, including a combination of videos and activities. Participants will complete the course and take an online post-test.
