When upset, some people’s painful feelings are expressed outwardly as anger, risk-taking, or violence; others focus their hurt inwardly and may exhibit depression, anxiety or self-injury. This workshop will share general principles about problems children may experience during adolescence and discuss the difference between internalizing and externalizing behaviors. Exploration of the subject will include discussion of ethnic/cultural and gender differences in prevalence rates of externalizing and internalizing behaviors. Participants will learn how the ecological framework can assist parents, educators, and social service professionals to identify the distress and respond constructively. Class size is limited to 30.
