Adolescence can be a tumultuous time, and today’s teenagers face a unique set of challenges.  We will look at:

- The nature of adolescence from a Chinese medicine perspective

- The practicalities of working with teenagers in the clinic

- The treatment of mental-emotional conditions for which teenagers seek treatment, including anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders.
