Responding to High-Risk Behaviors in Traumatized Adolescents: Attachment-Informed Creative Approaches
Adolescence is an exciting time of discovery and daring, as well as paradox. Teens experience superior health and peak immune functioning at the same time that they face heightened mortality due to a roller coaster of emotions, which can manifest in risky behavior, substance abuse, self-harm, sexual experimentation, and careless driving. There is a developmental mismatch that informs these paradoxes, as teen brains are primed to pursue novelty and social reward without having a fully developed braking system. Sensation seeking activities in the context of faulty impulse control can quickly devolve into a tightrope walk between high risk and healthy discovery.

In this workshop, we will explore the challenges for adolescents in navigating through choices, temptations, and consequences. Utilizing a multi-model approach, this experiential workshop will integrate drama, art, music, and creative writing with key clinical points in order to promote an understanding of teens from the inside out. Exploring the everyday mini worlds of 21st century teens, we will offer a multi-tiered approach to problem-solving risky behavior while also keeping the doors to adventure and discovery open.
