Workshop Description

Low-cost weekend training.

Youth who are struggling with an addiction often resist attempts at intervention. While some youth are merely experimenting, others may have larger unmet needs that can lead to a negative pattern of use. This workshop provides a framework for responding to a variety of addictions, including those related to substances, gaming, internet, and pornography. Participants will examine the needs underlying the choice to participate in a potentially addictive activity, and will consider issues that are unique to working with youth. Both short-term and longer-term intervention strategies are provided.
