On October 10th, Connie Gunderson, Ph.D., MSW, an Associate Professor of Social Work at CSS, will be speaking about "Understanding Gender in Adolescent Treatment." Attendees can expect to learn the role and effect of gender, and the treatment of adolescents with substance abuse and mental health issues.

His topic is, "Trends with the treatment of drug abusing adolescents with co-existing disorders." Listeners can discover the complexity of treating and providing continued care of adolescents with dual diagnosis.

On March 27th, Michelle Johnson-Jennings, Ph.D., and Co-Director of the Research for Indigenous Community Health and an Assistant Professor for the University of Minnesota's College of Pharmacy will speak. Her topic is the "Impact of culture on dual diagnosis," and will focus on how culture influences the mental health of adolescents.
