Millennial and Generation Z Mental Health

Rebecca J. Ristow, LIMHP

The purpose of this presentation is to summarize how parenting, technology use, maladaptive coping, and environment have contributed to the Millennial Generation and Generation Z’s underdeveloped self-efficacy. This presentation reviews concepts from Behaviorism, Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages, Social Learning Theory and Attachment. The presentation applies these concepts to case conceptualizations. Finally, the presentation will hypothesize, and invite discussion, on the current social climate and it’s contribution to suffering and meaning.
