Understanding Emotional and Mental Health in Adolescents: Is it Just a Phase or a Serious Problem?

  • Andrews University Chan Shun Hall-Whirlpool 4185 East Campus Circle Drive Berrien Springs, MI, 49103 United States (map)

Course Description:

This course will focus on adolescents with behaviors that are disruptive in multiple domains, potentially disrupting home or foster care placements and often leading to involvement in the juvenile justice system. Behavior in youth is communication and misbehavior is not always willful. Learning what their behavior is telling us about their emotional well-being and mental health can help us to respond more effectively with the most appropriate intervention. Attendees will learn risks and protective factors influencing emotional and mental health along with strategies to respond effectively to build resiliency.
