                                                             INTRODUCTION  
                

Erik Erickson was among the first to describe the psychosocial stages of human development and to acknowledge that growth and change occur from infancy through late adulthood.

This conference presents various aspects of life’s transitions and the significant ways in which they are interrelated.  Participants will be offered a deeper understanding and appreciation of both the challenges and dilemmas our patients traverse and effective ways to facilitate healthy developmental evolution throughout the human life span.

1.5 Contact Hours
 
In this presentation, the Novicks describe different models of the developmental process utilized from Freud on. They outline the developmental challenges that have to be mastered for a successful transition from being a preschooler to becoming a schoolchild, and talk about the differences between constructive adaptations (open-system solutions) and pathological defenses in reaction to real or anticipated trauma (closed-system solutions). Clinical examples and vignettes from ordinary life illustrate their points in relation to developing emotional muscle in life or treatment.

Teaching Methods:   Lecture includes current research on theory and concepts with illustrations from ordinary life (60 minutes), followed by an open dialogue with audience participants (30 minutes).

Handouts:  Bibliography/References

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and assess developmental transitions from multiple perspectives.
  2. Describe ways to include open-system strengths in clinical evaluation and treatment.

           The Evolution of Adolescence(ts): 
                   Challenges and Dilemmas New and Old


                                               Neil Altman, Ph.D.
 

1.5 contact Hours
 

Adolescents perplex and challenge adults, yet we have all been adolescents ourselves.  Parents, teachers, and therapists are called on to juggle their identifications with adolescent experimentation, compliance, and defiance, their defenses against these identifications, and their responsibilities as adults.  We will also touch on the envy many adults feel of the freedom adolescents have, or may seem to have, to experiment in various ways. To some hormonal degree, adolescents live in an altered state of consciousness.  Hormonal and physiological factors interact with cultural and familial forces.   At this moment the rate of cultural change, including social media and other forms of technology is accelerating at an unprecedented pace, so that adolescents to an extent live in a different world than their elders.  Issues of substance use and abuse, along with sexual, gender, racial, and ethnic identity, are increasingly complex and confusing. Work life is more unstable, requiring ongoing education and mobility, than was the case for previous generations. Dating and love relationships interact with technology in new ways. Nonetheless, issues of vocational choice, social status, inclusion/exclusion, and evolution within, and away from, the family of origin, persist. 

In this talk I will highlight some of the contemporary and long-standing forces that impact adolescents and young adults, along with the challenges facing those of us who seek to support them from a different generational vantage point.  I will present examples, and invite vignettes from the audience, of dilemmas and challenges that arise in clinical work, in school and other community settings, and in everyday life. 

Teaching Methods:    Lecture and discussion will include a wide range of new and old issues faced by adolescents with a focus on hormonal and physiological factors that interact with cultural and familial values illuminated through case examples (60 minutes), followed by an open dialogue with audience participants who are invited to bring in vignettes of dilemmas and challenges that arise in clinical work (30 minutes).


Handouts:  Bibliography/References

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify three psychological challenges faced in the parenting of adolescents with respect to gender, sexual orientation, sexuality, and/or substance use/abuse.
  2. Identify three ways in which social media has changed the social landscape for today's adolescents.
  3. Identify two ways in which processes of self-development is being altered by the centrality of social media in the lives of today's adolescents.

1.5 Contact Hours

Freud is quoted as stating that the ability to love and work are the hallmarks of adult health.  This is echoed in Erickson’s life cycle stages of intimacy and generativity, and the family life cycle’s focus on successful formation of a dyad and addition of new family members.  In contemporary times, the conflicts among self-fulfillment versus the inherent responsibilities of marriage, parenting and work lead to challenges maintaining satisfying, stable intimate relationships.  This presentation will delve into the ways that shifts in identity, romantic expectations, and stress create problems in adult intimate relationships.  Current research on the relationship realities for contemporary American adults and ways to improve adult relationships will be highlighted.
  
Teaching Methods:    Lecture will include current research findings on couple relationships and theories and concepts of individual development throughout various stages of life with specific focus on how this impacts transitions throughout a couple’s relationship. (60 minutes), followed by an open dialogue with audience participants (30 minutes).

1.5 Contact Hours

Increased life expectancy is a well-documented new phenomenon in human history. Less well- documented is the fact that with longer life comes new potential for psychological development into our 80's, 90's and beyond. Yet many people, young and old, fear growing old. Death, looming and inevitable, can shroud the whole period of older adulthood with morbidity. In this presentation, we will sort out the fears, false beliefs, transferences, and realities of older adulthood that inveigh against hope. And we will consider the special challenges and opportunities in continuing development in older adulthood--a new frontier in human existence. As Jung said: “...for the ageing person it is a duty and a necessity to devote serious attention to himself” because “the bill will now be presented for what [developmentally] was bypassed in the earlier years.” And because we can go on becoming!

Teaching Methods:    Lecture and discussion will include current research on aging with a focus on both the challenges and opportunities of working with the older adult demonstrated through case vignettes (60 minutes), followed by an open dialogue with audience participants (30 minutes).

Handouts:  Bibliography/References

Learning Objectives:

As a result of attending this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Provide a definition for each of the following four myths and stereotypes about older aging: the decline model of aging; ageism; compassionate ageism
    and gerontophobia.
  2. Describe normative psychological development in older adulthood and what differentiates older adulthood from all prior developmental phases.
  3. Identify two to three ways this presentation provided an informed hopeful perspective on growing old and ways it enhanced interest and confidence in treating older adults.
