Conference focus areas and target audiences: The Adolescent Symposium targets a variety of professionals who want to be in the forefront of meeting the challenges of today’s youth and their families. The focus of the Symposium is to “enhance the tool box” for those working with youth. Through intervening and preventing some of the challenges faced by teens today, one positive adult can have a deciding impact on the life of a teen, and as a community, we can provide the best possible strategies to help guide, support, and confront adolescents.
