Discuss one issue that may be faced by an adolescent

Week 2

Prior to beginning work on this discussion forum, read Chapter 6 of the required text. Adolescence is considered a distinct developmental period. Discuss one issue that may be faced by an adolescent (e.g., bullying, eating disorders, suicidal ideations, depression, substance abuse, etc.). Explore options, and recommend a treatment professional and a setting to address the adolescent’s issue. State why that professional and that setting are the best options. Your main discussion post should consist of approximately 350 words.

Guided Response: Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. When responding to your peers, please provide one resource in a local, regional, national agency, or organization that is in place to assist with the discussed adolescence issue. Support your initial and subsequent posts by citing at least two scholarly resources, preferably from the Ashford University Library. The Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) table offers additional guidance on appropriate source types. If you have questions about whether a specific source is appropriate for this assignment, please contact your instructor. Your instructor has the final say about the appropriateness of a specific source for an assignment.
