Research Updates for Professionals

We offer short term, non-credit professional development opportunities to professionals working with families with teens. Research Updates for Professionals workshops explore current research on specific topics in the field of normative adolescent development and what it means for the two-way parent-adolescent relationship. Participants will have opportunities to reflect on course content and explore what it means for their day to day work.

The online workshops are a great resource for for many types of professionals:

Register with coworkers to enhance learning. Participants will be encouraged to discuss topics with their colleagues.

Participants will be able to listen to audio-streamed PowerPoint presentations, as well as download note taking documents from PowerPoint presentations, journal article summaries, resource lists, and other resources. Discussion boards and online learning activities also enhance the course.
