Course Description:

The DSM-5® has removed the Childhood Disorders section and placed the disorders common to children in various sections throughout the manual. In this seminar we will focus on these disorders with special attention to the significant changes that have been introduced.

Walk away from this seminar with the knowledge to view, and treat childhood disorders in two broad domains. Internalizing disorders, such as anxiety and depression, and externalizing disorders which include a range of behavioral problems. As we explore these disorders, you will review current evidence-based therapeutic strategies for treatment. This will include attention to the increasing trend of non-suicidal self-harm, which can be a very challenging patient population.

The primary purpose of the day is to greatly increase your understanding of childhood disorders and increase your confidence as you diagnose and treat children. This day is guaranteed to make you a more effective child and adolescent diagnostician and therapist.
