Childhood and Adolescent Disorders
Registration: 8:30 a.m.
DESCRIPTION : This training will provide an overview of the main categories of the DSM 5 that pertain to children and adolescents, including: 1) Trauma and Stressor-Related Disorders; 2) Disruptive, Impulsive-Control and Conduct Disorders; 3) Neurodevelopmental Disorders; 4) Depressive Disorders; 5) Bi-Polar and Related Disorders; 6) Anxiety Disorders; and 7) Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders. We will consider the trauma perspective as it relates to the mental health of children and adolescents, and discuss the implications to child welfare and juvenile justice work. You will be introduced to variety of practical tools and strategies to infuse into your case planning and everyday work with children, adolescents, and parents/caregivers.
Understanding childhood and adolescent mental health has become increasingly more complex. Our growing awareness of the impact of trauma on child development adds another dimension. At the same time, families look to you as the child welfare professional to help them understand their child and child’s behaviors, and navigate the complex system of care designed to support them. This two-day training is designed to help you grow in your understanding and ability to think critically about childhood and adolescent disorders.
