Let's Talk - A Professional Development Webinar Series

The multiple and various symptoms associated with co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders can create barriers to treatment and recovery, especially when care approaches aren’t integrated. For adolescent and young adult patients, developmental factors and significant life transitions in school, work and relationships pose additional treatment complexities and considerations. Join clinical social worker Victoria Lauer-Hunt to take a closer look at the intersection of co-occurring disorders and psychosocial development, identify evidence-based treatment practices and discuss integrated approaches to care.

Objectives
- Recognize the prevalence of co-occurring disorders among adolescent and young adult populations
- Identify biopsychosocial aspects of co-occurring disorders
- Distinguish between the effects of substance intoxication or withdrawal and the symptoms of co-occurring mental health disorders
- Describe evidence-based practices helpful in treating co-occurring disorders in adolescents and young adults
