CE Event: Let's Talk About Opposition in Adolescence
Featuring Tawanda Hubbard, DSW, LCSW
Opposition in adolescence has become synonymous with oppositional defiant disorder. This view of opposition as a disorder is limiting and puts adults in conflict with youth. This webinar will focus on discussing the need to see opposition on a continuum. Participants will identify and discuss their personal constructs about oppositionality in adolescence. They will explore my construct of opposition as advocacy and power expression in adolescence which facilitates the youth's development of a healthy sense of self and purpose that will equip them to transition into a healthy, productive, and satisfying adulthood. Participants will discuss the importance of focusing on the caregiver-adolescent relationship and using relational interventions.
