In this module, Mario guides students in exploring the importance of bringing developmental awareness to work with youth. He discusses adolescents' developmental stages including the differences between children, adolescents (all stages of adolescence), and adults. The trainer integrates neurobiology, including polyvagal theory, into the lesson. 

In parallel, he speaks about group dynamics and how groups form and develop. Mario incorporates the Therapeutic Spiral Model (TSM) clinical approach including the clinical map, Trauma Survivors Internal Role Atom (TSIRA). He also describes how the TSM prescriptive roles provide a useful map for developmental, informed work with adolescents. The main emphasis of the module is the practical application of Role Reversal, with demonstrations on the various ways to utilize it. 

Module includes: 

 · Video lectures - 35 min.

· Practical video Demonstrations - 113 min.
