From A(ddiction) to Z(its): Supporting Teens with Health Information

Body image, experimentation, identity, depression, sexuality, and stress are just some of the issues important to teens as they experience many changes physically and mentally. Trusting adults and authority figures may not be easy for many teens. When it comes to health issues they, their friends, or their family, may be experiencing, it is important that they have access to reliable health information. Seeking that help can be difficult. Those who work with teens will be provided with an introduction to teen health resources. Both the blended and face-to-face classes will present an overview of health information needs of teenagers and their information seeking behaviors, review communication skills needed during reference interviews with teenagers, and explore credible health information resources that are designed for teens.
