Adolescent Development for Youth Professionals

April 28, 2021 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

In this workshop we discuss mental health stigma, how adolescence is perceived and how to navigate interpersonal interactions.

About this Event


This will be done in the context of the types of changes adolescents experience socially, psychologically and biologically. Content centred on how to improve resilience and communication will explore the benefits of talking openly, developing a support network, managing expectations and what to do if a conversation around mental health has not gone as planned. Attendees will receive a signposting guide of organisations to contact if they are ever in need of external support.

Learning Outcomes:

Have an increased global understanding of the adolescent experience and a broader understanding of mental health
