Creative Case Planning for Families with Children with Bi-Polar (223)
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
DESCRIPTION :Working with families where children suffer from a mental illness can be particularly challenging for the child welfare social worker. Bipolar can affect children on many levels-cognitively, behaviorally, environmentally, and socially. There is much controversy around children with bipolar due to the potential overlap with ADHD, depression, and conduct disorder. This workshop will focus on those challenges and provide you an opportunity to problem solve around those issues. We will focus specifically on children that suffer from bi-polar. This workshop will consist of lecture, small and large group discussion, and case planning.
TARGET AUDIENCE: Child welfare professionals whose caseload includes children with bipolar and other mental health diagnoses and who want to increase their skills in working with this population
