Seven Challenges

Description:

Designed to treat adolescents with drug/other behavioral problems

Counselors and clients identify the most important issues and discuss issues while the counselor seamlessly integrates a set of concepts called the seven challenges into the conversation

Skills training, problem solving, and family participation are integrated into sessions that address drug problems, co-occurring problems, and life skills deficits

The Seven Challenges reader, a book of experiences told from the perspective of adolescents who have been successful in overcoming problems, is used by clients to generate ideas and inspiration related to their own lives

Youth write in a set of nine Seven Challenges Journals, and counselors and youth engage in a written process called cooperative journaling

Can be implemented in an array of settings, including inpatient, outpatient, home-based, juvenile justice, day treatment, and school.

Number, length, and frequency of sessions depend on the setting

Study Populations:

13-17 (Adolescent)

Hispanic or Latino, White, Race/ethnicity unspecified

Adaptations: program materials available in Spanish

Outcomes:

1. Substance use and related problems

2. Symptoms of mental health problems
