Research Updates for Professionals
We offer short term, non-credit professional development opportunities to professionals working with families of teens. Research Updates for Professionals explore current research on specific topics in the field of normative adolescent development and what it means for the two-way parent-adolescent relationship. Participants will have opportunities to reflect on course content and explore what it means for their day to day work.
The online workshops are a great resource for school personnel, counselors, social workers, faith-based staff, parent educators, public health staff, and others who work with teens and their families. Register with coworkers to enhance learning and receive a discounted registration rate. Participants will be encouraged to discuss topics with other colleagues.
Participants will be able to listen to audio-streamed PowerPoint presentations, as well as download note taking documents from PowerPoint presentations, journal article summaries, resource lists, and other resources. Discussion boards and online learning activities also enhance the course.
