Children & Youth: Risks & Healthy Development

The Children and Youth concentration provides students with knowledge and skills to work from a resilience perspective with adolescents and children in a wide variety of settings: mental health, family services agencies, schools, treatment centers, youth correctional facilities, and community agencies.

The concentration gives students expertise in the theories and practices for prevention, early intervention and clinical treatment with children and youth. The overarching frameworks for the concentration are positive youth development and resilience. Students learn clinical strategies that are particularly effective for working with children and youth.

Current students can find additional curriculum information on the GSSW Student Resource Portfolio page.
