Would you like to learn more about research on adolescent risk-taking and implications for your work? Register now for the workshop, "Understanding Adolescent Risk-Taking Behavior - Online Research Update for Professionals," developed by University of Minnesota Extension.
This short term professional development opportunity is designed to: define risk-taking, present a multi-dimensional framework for understanding risk-taking, introduce a model of adolescent decision making, reframe risk-taking, and offer a systems approach to risk-taking with an emphasis on family influences. Participants will have opportunities to apply current research on risk-taking through online activities and in threaded discussions. Participants will also be encouraged to discuss topics with other colleagues.
The workshop is geared to professionals who work in schools, extension, court systems, treatment programs, faith based organizations, and public health; also counselors, social workers, youth workers, parent educators, and others who work with teens and their families in community organizations and agencies.
Registration is open now until October 1, 2010. The workshop is accessible from the time registration confirmation is received through December 1, 2010. Participants can go in and out of the online workshop as many times as they wish, completing it at their own pace. Registration fee is $50 per person; $45/individual when three or more people register from the same agency or funding source. Upon completing the workshop and evaluation, participants can access a certificate of completion documenting four clock hours. To register or learn more, visit http://www.parenting.umn.edu.
