Helping young people heal is your greatest reward.
But when treating adolescents with depression, anxiety, and trauma the full extent of their suffering is not always obvious. Many in distress wear a mask of strength while secretly harming themselves or hiding their struggle with thoughts of suicide. You worry that you could be missing critical signs.
This seminar will provide you with the assessment tools you need to unmask self-harming and suicidal thoughts, adapt interventions from DBT and CBT to work with the distinct challenges of treating suicidal and self-harming adolescents, and manage the specific confidentiality and liability issues that accompany working with minors.
There’s too much at stake to be unprepared!
Sign up today and leave this critical program confident and capable in using these vital assessment tools and treatment techniques to bring hope and healing to vulnerable young clients!
Continuing education credit information is coming soon for this live webcast.
