The Liaison Center on Psychosocial Intervention and Prevention (CLIPP), in collaboration with the Table de concertation jeunesse Kateri of the Montérégie territory, is proud to present the Guide to identifying certain psychosocial difficulties experienced by young people. Designed in part with the financial assistance of Caisse Desjardins de La Prairie and Caisse Desjardins des Berges de Roussillon, this guide aims to help people working with young people aged 10 to 17 to better interpret the indices associated with certain psychosocial difficulties they may encounter. With this guide, workers will be able to direct young people more quickly to the appropriate resources.
Twelve issues are addressed: addiction to alcohol and cannabis, energy drinks, pathological gambling, internet addiction, eating disorders, major depressive disorder, suicide, scarification, anxiety disorders, social phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), conduct disorder.
After addressing certain myths, it presents several clues and risks associated with each problem, in addition to providing a list of resources adapted to each.
This guide is only available in PDF version.
