Cracking the Code with Adolescents

Ever enter the consulting room with a teen who doesn’t want to be there? If you work with teens, you know how tricky it can be to establish good communication and a positive connection, not to mention get the treatment results you’re both hoping for.

There are many approaches to treating teens, but very little information on how to engage them in an ongoing and productive relationship.

In this recording, using role-play and other experiential tools, we’ll focus on the core skills that underlie the successful implementation of any intervention.
