Training Overview Description

Join presenters Fred Dyer PhD, CADC, and Jessica A. Love Jordan-Banks, MHS, CADC, for this FREE NAADAC webinar that will enable the participants to work more effectively when counseling emerging adults with substance use disorders.

Substance use developmentally peaks during emerging adulthood (ages 18-25). Many emerging adults who develop problematic substance use during this developmental period have been exposed to environmental, individual, and interpersonal stressors throughout their life that place them at risk for ongoing difficulties with substance use as they transition to adulthood. This transition into substance use interfaces with the five features of emerging adulthood. The helping professional, however, is left with the dilemma on how to proceed in addressing substance use disorders in emerging adults. This webinar will enable the participants to work more effectively when counseling emerging adults with substance use disorders.
