Description:  This course will provide an overview of mental disorders most commonly associated with children and adolescents. This seminar is designed for practitioners who work primarily with children, adolescents, and/or their family members. It examines the neurodevelopmental effects of specific categories of diagnoses as well as the potential psychosocial ramifications of being diagnosed with one or more of these disorders. The importance of working with both young persons and their primary caregivers to help them better understand, cope, and manage symptoms of specific disorders are discussed.

  • Use the DSM-5 with increased knowledge and familiarity.
  • Identify what is currently known about the neurodevelopmental effects of specific disorders and ongoing questions regarding other disorders.
  • Identify factors that affect diagnosis, including prevalence rates, age and gender distribution, heritability factors, and other risks.
