Date & Time: Friday, October 20, 2017 from 8:45am to 4:00pm

Registration Opening: Friday, September 8, 2017

Driving Directions to Genesee Community College, Conable Technology Building

Presenter: Margaret Sibley, PhD

Overview:

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 (ages 11-17) and provides skills to struggling adolescents and their parents. The goal of this treatment is to increase adolescent self-directedness and success by engaging the parent-teen dyad in treatment. The flexible approach allows therapists to build a unique treatment plan for each case. Modules include training in adolescent organization, time management, and planning skills, helping parents find a balance between providing support and promoting independence, and making changes to the home environment and family routine in support of teen success. STAND is delivered using a Motivational Interviewing style to help dyads reconnect with their personal goals and values and find realistic strategies that improve parent and teen quality of life.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe skills parents and teens can practice to improve executive functioning and motivation problems in teens.
  • Apply population-specific therapy delivery strategies that promote initial engagement and long-term practice of skills at home.
  • Explain overinvolved and under-involved parenting patterns that frequently emerge in these families, and how to help parents step away from practices that inhibit teen growth and autonomy.
  • Develop 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.

Research:

The main clinical skill used in the STAND intervention is motivational interviewing, a SAMHSA recognized Evidence-based practice (http://legacy.nreppadmin.net/ViewIntervention.aspx?id=346). Research results for the STAND model can be found: https://stand.fiu.edu/apply/nominate-student-spp/.
