Adolescents in treatment programs are often reluctant participants, but, when engaged, can experience tremendous growth and motivation to change. The challenge lies in both getting and keeping them engaged. In this workshop, we’ll discuss creative interventions that can change the way you work with youth and inspire them to connect with themselves on a deep level as they explore their identities.
• Learn developmental stages related to the adolescence years and critical characteristics of emotional, cognitive, and social development
• Explore the idea of adolescent identity development as expressed in art work
• Practice art interventions that further connection and build rapport with youth in treatment programs
