Statement of Purpose

Child and adolescent mental health is extremely important to understand for all providers because childhood mental health affects and impacts adult patients as well. A disorder in childhood affects activities of daily living, adaptive coping, interpersonal interactions and many other aspects of life including treatment adherence and many other public health issues. Practitioners should understand that the entire lifespan of experiences contributes to who the person is in present day, and better understanding child and adolescent mental health will provide a better conceptualization for treatment.

Program Objectives

At the end of this program, participants will be able to:

  • Discuss disorders and life experiences in childhood that could have an effect on patients during adulthood; evaluate these patients and prescribe appropriate evidence-based therapies accordingly.
  • Identify specific approaches to diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents and how they may differ from treating an adult population.
  • Describe evidence-based substance use screening methods that can be efficiently performed in clinical practice.
  • Identify a range of barriers to provider fidelity and child engagement in behavioral treatment.
  • Make an appropriate assessment of obese children and adolescents who might be at risk for increased risks of specific mental illnesses.
  • Explain the diagnostic criteria for Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD) and Bipolar Disorder in youth.
