EME02 Emerging Adulthood - The Transformational Self
Harry Bendicsen, LCSW, is concerned with the processes that propel the transition from adolescence to adulthood. In his book, "The Transformational Self: Attachment and the End of the Adolescent Phase", he takes major trends in psychological thinking: psychoanalytic theory; complexity theory; attachment theory; relational theories; linguistic theory; and neurological research, and integrates them to create a new framework of interdisciplinary process that he names, “Regulation Theory.” Using these insights, he shows how this becomes the “gateway” to young adulthood.
Course Objective
This program provides clinicians with the opportunity to learn about:
  • Understand the concept “developmental algorithm”.
  • Identify two biological markers that indicate the possibility that adolescence is coming to an end.
  • Define the concept “a state of mind” and describe how it refers to the concept “the transformational self”.
  • Describe three qualities of Complexity Theory.

Intended Audience
Nurses, Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Addiction Therapists
