Adolescents with attention, executive functioning, and motivation difficulties often struggle at home, school, and with others. Supporting Teens’ Autonomy Daily (STAND; Sibley, 2016) is an empirically supported and award winning treatment program that is tailored to the realities of adolescence and provides skills to struggling adolescents and their parents.
In this 3-day training, we will:
1. Learn what skills parents and teens can practice to improve executive functioning and motivation problems in teens.
2. Discuss and practice population-specific therapy delivery strategies that promote initial engagement and long-term practice of skills at home.
3. Understand overinvolved and underinvolved parenting patterns that frequently emerge in these families, and how to help parents step away from practices that inhibit teen growth and autonomy.
4. Learn the basics of parent-teen behavioral contracting—including how to deal with electronics use, barriers to monitoring teens, teens who resist limits, and helping families find and accept their best-case scenario.
