PRESENTATION:  A critical developmental task for youth is identity development. Lived experiences and losses often create ambiguity and uncertainty leading to grief, loss of self-esteem, and personal challenges. This training will explore this critical stage of life and identify opportunities to foster youth identity and resilience.  Focused attention will be on ‘trends’ in identity formation including substance use, social media, etc. Challenges and opportunities for vulnerable youth including those that have experienced trauma, foster and adopted youth, those raised by caregivers struggling with substance use disorder, mental illness, etc. will be explored.  As a result of this training, participant will:

  • Understand the unique cognitive and developmental stages and challenges for teens.
  • Explore the challenges in fostering a healthy sense of self and identity for vulnerable youth.
  •  Identify critical identity challenges associate with traumatic loss and ambiguous loss.
  •  Recognize the professional’s role in fostering resilience in youth.
  • Explore opportunities to foster healthy identify development.
