The Defining Decade: What 20-somethings Really Want from Therapy



There are 50 million 20-somethings in the U.S. and, more than ever, they’re looking for therapists. Yet too few clinicians specialize in this age group or are aware of its unique opportunities and challenges. Find out what’s so special about this “defining decade” and why 30 is not the new 20 in terms of starting a life. Rather than a developmental downtime, the 20s are a developmental sweet spot. In this recording, you’ll learn: 

  • Why “anxiety is the new depression” in this age group—and the most effective ways to address their concerns 
  • Why finding work and love is a mental health issue for 20-somethings—and how to make it part of your work with them 
  • How “the nocebo effect” informs diagnosis—and how to talk about the difference between development and disorder 
  • “Forward-thinking” interventions to help 20-somethings be intentional about the present and take responsibility for the future
