Engaging the Adolescent Patient in their own Health Care:
a presentation for health care practitioners
and medical professionals

Sometimes it really can seem like ‘youth is wasted on the young’, especially when they don’t accept our good advice! There are many factors of psychological and emotional development to consider when working with the adolescent patient in the context of the office visit. This presentation will seek to explore some of the psychological growth dynamics involved in maturation for the young person, and in particular we will consider resistance. We will consider why resistance emerges in the young, what healthy purpose it serves, and how to best dance with such dynamics in the context of a fifteen minute office visit.
