Teens and Adolescents Continuing Education Courses

NBCC CE Hours: 6

Studies show that LGBTQ+ teens are significantly more likely than peers to experience depression, anxiety, substance-related problems, and suicidal thoughts. They’re also more likely to engage in self-harming behaviors, experience trauma, become homelessness, and under-perform in school settings. Despite these well documented concerns, mental health professionals often feel poorly prepared to provide quality care when meeting with this population. This workshop will provide an interactive, non-judgmental space to explore clinical and ethical considerations when meeting with LGBTQ+ teens.

Youth have been home since mid-March, due to both school closures and the stay-home order. During this time, teen clients have gone from generally unaffected by the coronavirus crisis, to mildly restless, to chronically bored, lonely, and lethargic. In other words, these teens have the Pandemic Blues.

In this workshop, we’ll develop the knowledge and skills to look behind those masks – in order to address the roots of this covert depression, the impact of the Guy Code, and the Stuckness that results when biological predispositions and environmental stressors collide. Since this Stuckness often includes Big Questions related to death, meaninglessness, and isolation, we’ll consider practical strategies for exploring existential themes with depressed adolescent males.
