Participants will gain an understanding of the distinctions between juvenile and adult illegal behavior, including recidivism rates, treatment response and motivations that underlie PSB. Participants will also learn how to utilize and incorporate age appropriate language and responses to PSB in children and youth, and how timely assessments can assist in safety planning and appropriate treatment recommendations.
