“An Adlerian Approach to Supporting Teens and The Families They Live In”

This year we are planning some exciting opportunities for our annual conference. We are planning to offer this conference both in person at the Riverside Hotel in Boise Idaho and Virtually online via the Zoom platform. We realize that there are current concerns with COVID-19 and are doing what we can to ensure a safe and successful conference. During registration participants will select whether they are attending in-person or virtually through Zoom. All participants will receive the information needed to attend virtually in case a situation arises that they cannot travel to the conference. In the event that Alyson will not be able to travel due to COVID restrictions she will provide the conference virtually.


This year’s presenter will be Alyson Schafer. The title of the conference is “An Adlerian Approach to Supporting Teens and The Families They Live In”. This is a practical workshop for helping practitioners and parents understand adolescents from a bio-psycho-social perspective, using an Adlerian framework, and how to guide parents and teens towards happier, healthier functioning.

Learning Objectives: At the end of the conference, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the unique changes that happen during this important developmental part of a humans life.
2. Explain how family atmosphere/ values / parenting styles and birth order shape teens and their choices.
3. Understand the teens behaviour through exploring their lifestyle and private logic.
4. Highlight the power of the parent / teen relationship as both a protective and corrective strategy and how to repair or build it up, including communication skills
5. Better understand some of the tough topics parents and teens are currently dealing with.
