Training Title:
Working with High-Risk Adolescents

Clock Hours: 1

After completing this course, participants should be able to: • Recognize that your clients are your experts, not hopeless victims. • Recognize and understand what Selekman views as one of his most important therapeutic methods. • Learn a new technique for working with self –harming behaviors. • Be able to engage families who have experienced multiple treatment failures. • Understand and be able to recognize when you may experience therapeutic backlash.

One of the biggest challenges for today’s clinicians is working with high-risk adolescents and their families, who come to therapy angry, frustrated, and demoralized. Our speaker, Matthew Selekman, emphasizes the need to tailor therapy to the needs and resources of each adolescent and family. He demonstrates this with a lengthy case example. Keywords: Adolescent, family, therapy, high-risk, suicide, self-harming
