Group title:  Working with adolescents and emerging adults 

Group leader:  Diane Selinger, PhD

Meeting dates: Alternate Wednesdays, beginning September 28.  

Meeting times:  7:10 – 8:40 p.m.(CST) via Zoom

Group description:

Therapeutic work with adolescents and emerging adults is both gratifying and complex, and even more so during the Covid era.  This biweekly, ongoing consultation group will provide an opportunity for participants to present their work with adolescents and emerging adults.  We will share the developmental challenges we face in this work, as well as the potentially illuminating internal experiences we sometimes encounter along the way.  We will also address the additional issues that might arise in the work with parents, other family members, and schools.  The emphasis will be on a safe, thoughtful, and enriching exchange that will promote better understanding of the clinical process with adolescents and emerging adults, while deepening our understanding of our own experiences.  Concepts from various psychoanalytic perspectives will be included and discussed.

For many years, Dr. Selinger was the mental health consultant at Beth Osten and Associates, a multidisciplinary pediatric clinic.

She is senior faculty at Profectum Academy and was faculty at its DIR Institute predecessor. Diane’s teaching, presentations, webcasts, and publications have related to therapy with children and their parents.  They have spanned diverse topics, including autism and gender.
