Psychotherapeutic and Psychosocial Treatments for Child and Adolescent Disorders

This two-day workshop addresses current treatment models for child and adolescent disorders. Topics include: 1) similarities and differences across the major models of intervention, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and behavioral approaches; 2) the use and modification of standardized, evidence-based treatments (EBTs) to fit individual case presentations; and 3) specific interventions for the most common child and adolescent diagnoses, including disruptive behavior disorders (ADD, OD, CD), depression, anxiety disorders and PTSD, child and adolescent bipolar disorder, and emerging character dysfunction. The workshop will include didactic presentation and case-centered group exercises. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring sample case material that illustrates treatment difficulties or impasses.

This workshop does not have any offerings for this semester.
