This event is designed to support
CBT Therapists working with young people aged 18-24, particularly those CBT
Therapists in HE SIG.
The development from childhood to adulthood (adolescence) is an increasingly
widening and fragmented phase of life, now often considered to cover from 10 up
to 25 years. Education dominates much of this period and is fundamental to many
aspects of the development into adulthood. This event begins with an exploration of the
science of adolescence from various perspectives to invite participants to
consider this context of young people’s lives. It then moves on to explore theories
of adolescence, the models available to help us make sense of this phase of
life. Finally, it explores how this context might inform clinical decision-making
in CBT. There is a focus on the big clinical decisions: whether to intervene,
what goals to focus on, how to maintain engagement and when to stop. There is
also consideration of different ways of delivering CBT and their relative
merits in this context. The event will contain aspects of didactic teaching,
but will encourage an application of the ideas to clinical practice in
interaction, group discussions and a Q&A. Aims/Objectives
Understand the science of adolescent development
Compare different theories of adolescence
Apply these ideas to clinical practice
Implement the adjustments required in clinical practice in future
