Teen Behavior.  Depression.  Anxiety.

At any given time, up to 20% of children and adolescents meet diagnostic criteria for a psychological condition. This accounts for the majority of mental health referrals in primary care. Those working and living with adolescents are sometimes left wondering how best to help them or meet their evolving needs.

This certificate will give you the practical tools and skills to work with young people in any setting. Upon completion of the certificate, you will be able to:

  • Recognize adolescent mental health issues such as behavior problems, anxiety and depression.
  • Conceptualize adolescent mental health problems from a developmental, preventative perspective.
  • Develop and implement intervention approaches that are evidence-based, stress practicality and client acceptability, and involve the adolescent’s family and school.

The course is divided into four sections:  

  • Identifying and Conceptualizing Adolescent Mental Health Problems
  • Helping Parents Manage Teenage Behavior
  • Adolescent Anxiety: Practical Approaches and Therapeutic Interventions
  • Helping Adolescents Manage Depression and Other Mood Problems
