Lunch N Learn - Saturday
Share |


Clinicians treating adolescents with compulsive sexual behaviors, history of trauma and process dependencies can easily become flummoxed in their efforts by the adolescent client’s propensity for maintaining a comfortable, familiar sense of stasis. This discussion will identify the accomplishment of therapeutic goals in terms of developmental progression and will introduce the “Developmental Vacation” ® model for the effective treatment of difficult adolescent clients.

With a familiarization of the Development Vacation ® model, attendees will understand:

  • That beyond diagnosis, the real problem is that children and adolescents in treatment are getting older but not growing up.
  • How to conceptualize that which constitutes “treatment” for children and adolescents.
  • The two vital components of treatment for adolescents and children.
  • How to foster resilience as opposed to inadvertently becoming an additional dependency in the child or adolescent client’s life.
  • How to distinguish between adaptivity and a genuine process of change.
  • How to impact the family dynamic in support of the child or adolescent’s efforts to alter their lives.
  • The complexities and impediments associated with children struggling with attachment issues and a history of early trauma.
