How to Help Your Young Male Clients Get Unstuck, Get Healthy and Thrive with Elizabeth Jorgensen, CADC
For young men, depression and anxiety often manifest in patterns of avoidance, withdrawal from school and social life, and displays of anger and aggression. What can appear to parents as poor or “bad” behaviors are often the telltale signs of severe distress. Our culture still stigmatizes mental health conditions in boys and men, which makes it more difficult for them to ask for help, or even realize they are depressed or anxious. This workshop focuses on the unique presentation of boys when they are suffering, and how clinicians and parents can engage them in conversation and treatment.
-Describe the rates of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in teen and young adult men
-Identify atypical presentations of depression and anxiety in teen and young adult boys
-Learn and practice three strategies for engaging young men in the process of assessment and treatment
