Normality or Pathology: An Exploration of Child Development and Mental Health

ID: 5650

Where does normality end and pathology begin? This question is especially pertinent for clinicians working with children whose developmental stage has a tremendous impact on their current level of functioning. This workshop will explore the interrelationship between children's developmental stages and interpersonal functioning with peers and within family relationships. Participants will move along developmental lines, from separation anxiety to separation and individuation, and explore what separates "normal" child developmental struggles from extremes in behavior indicative of a range of mental health issues. Participants will also explore age-appropriate treatment approaches.
