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.
