Venue: This is an online course

Adolescence can be a tumultuous time. Today’s teenagers face a unique set of challenges, which have become more complex since the pandemic.

During this online 1-day CPD course, we will look at:

  • The nature of adolescence from a Chinese medicine perspective
  • An exploration of the exponential rise in adolescent mental/emotional conditions from the 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.

You will leave the course feeling confident to begin welcoming struggling teens into your clinic and to effectively support them during this potentially difficult time in their lives.

Please note, this day includes new material so you will gain from it even if you have attended Rebecca’s previous teenager CPD days.
