'Where in the World Have Our Young People Gone?"
Friday, November 21, 2014
Networking: 8:30 AM to 9:00 AM
Presentation: 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Our world expects young people in the transition to adulthood to be self-sufficient, employable, good citizens, trustworthy, self-reflective and in possession of useful ideals. These are big expectations for any young person, let alone for those who have found the use of alcohol or other drugs fun, relaxing, the only way they think they can relate to others or deal with the pressures of life. How do we talk to these young people to help them reconnect with life without getting high? In this session participants will:
Gain an understanding of the depth of the cultural demands on young people today and how profoundly addiction affects their chances for normal adult development.
Develop skills for talking with young addicts through role plays and discussion.
Analyze a case study related to this therapeutic challenge.
