Online Course » EME02 Emerging Adulthood - The Transformational Self

Course Description:
Harry Bendicsen, LCSW, is concerned with the processes that propel the transition from adolescence to adulthood. In his book, "The Transformational Self: Attachment and the End of the Adolescent Phase", he takes major trends in psychological thinking: psychoanalytic theory; complexity theory; attachment theory; relational theories; linguistic theory; and neurological research, and integrates them to create a new framework of interdisciplinary process that he names, “Regulation Theory.” Using these insights, he shows how this becomes the “gateway” to young adulthood.
Course Objective:
This program provides clinicians with the opportunity to learn about:
  • Understand the concept “developmental algorithm”.
  • Identify two biological markers that indicate the possibility that adolescence is coming to an end.
  • Define the concept “a state of mind” and describe how it refers to the concept “the transformational self”.
  • Describe three qualities of Complexity Theory.

Intended Audience:
Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addiction Therapists
