School problems, family conduct, the death of a loved one, sexuality issues: in adolescents, these stressors can lead to feelings of depression and anxiety, both of which are characteristics of adjustment disorder. Adjustment disorders can occur during transitional periods in life, making teens especially vulnerable and substance use a particular risk.
A module in Hazelden's Adolescent Cooccurring Disorders Series, Substance Use and Adjustment Disorder provides you with information about the disorder, informs you of proven or promising treatments, and includes reproducible workbook pages for client use.
Substance Use and Adjustment Disorder is a reproducible 50-page workbook of client exercises and facilitator information. The exercises are designed to be used with the help of a counselor, therapist, psychologist, social worker, or physician. This module can be used in numerous settings--schools, criminal justice settings, mental health units, and chemical dependency treatment units. It also works as a self-assessment and learning tool in group or individual settings.
Among the 12 session topics: "Symptoms of Adjustment Disorder," "Evaluating Your Story and Moving Ahead," and "Completing Your Personal Plan." Three-ring binder available separately, or free with the purchase of the entire series (#0391).
