Emerging young adults share common difficulties in negotiating the universal challenges of transition to adulthood. Common clinical challenges include mood and anxiety disorders, PTSD, trauma related and dissociative disorders, co-occurring psychotic disorders, substance use and addictive disorders, eating disorders, borderline and avoidant personality disorders and “failure to launch.”

Jesse Viner, M.D., Founder & Executive Medical Director of Yellowbrick, a psychiatric healthcare organization in Evanston whose mission is to provide a full-spectrum, specialized approach to the emotional, psychological and developmental challenges of emerging young adults, will provide the keynote address. Loyola School of Social Work faculty and Hazelden staff will discuss their research and clinical efforts serving emerging adults. Additionally, a portion of the presentation includes experiential discussions, permitting participants to practice, using evidence-supported clinical interventions to more effectively serve emerging adults.
