About the presentation:
The parent-adolescent relationship has been stereotyped to be a relationship of less importance and filled with conflict. Despite the stereotype, the relationship between parents and their adolescents, and how conflict is managed, remains important throughout adolescence. For example, a positive parent-adolescent relationship is related to lower levels of depression and delinquent behaviors (Hair et al., 2005). In addition, adolescents who reported more conflicts with their parents and reported lower self-esteem and more risky behavior (Tucker, McHale, & Crouter, 2003).
This lecture will present information to help individuals gain a better understanding of factors that affect the parent-adolescent relationship and the conflict that occurs within the relationship. Dr. Kalee Gross will also provide various ways parents can improve their relationships with their adolescents. There are no known risks to attendees or patients. As with all clinical interventions, attendees should be culturally considerate and receive proper training and supervision.
