Working with Adolescents: Redefining Co-Occurring as Substance Use and Trauma LEARNING SESSION 2: Impact of Substance Use on Adolescent Brain Development and What We Observe


Working with Adolescents: Redefining ‘Co-Occurring’ as Substance Use and Trauma LEARNING SESSION 2: Impact of Substance Use on Adolescent Brain Development and What We Observe in Behavior

Monday, January 24, 2022

10am-12pm

Instructor: 
Dale Yagiela, MA, LMSW, CAADC

 

Course Description:

Substance Use impacts not only brain function but development as well. Youth using drugs are seldom their chronological age so treatment needs to “match up” against youth youth’s developmental age to be impactful. We will also examine what observable changes are evident as addiction progresses in an adolescent and how it limits and provides opportunities for treatment and intervention. We will “play” with a progression chart and some client profiles as part of this session to help folks get familiar with the progression factors connected with adolescent addiction and the treatment opportunities they afford. 
 

Course Objectives:

- Learn about the impact of trauma on brain function and development

- Learn about what changes can be observed in an adolescent who is engaging in substance use and how this plays a role in treatment/invention planning

- Discuss progression factors connected with adolescent addiction using progression charts and client profiles


Timed Agenda:

10:00am-10:30am Presentation on brain function and development related to use of substances in adolescents

10:30am-11:30am Exploration and presentation on noticeable changes in youth that can be pivotal to treatment planning and development of clinical interventions

11:30am-12:00pm Discussion of progression factors in adolescent substance use
