Please join the Family Service Society Professional Training Institute for the workshop “Bipolar Disorder in Children & Adolescents: Clinical Presentation, Assessment Strategies & Treatment Planning” at the Corning Radisson Hotel on Friday, June 4th from 9:00am-4:00pm. The workshop will be presented by Eric A. Youngstrom, Ph.D from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This workshop will be of interest to people working with children and adolescents impacted by bipolar disorder (also known as manic depression) which, until recently, was only rarely diagnosed in youths. This workshop discusses key issues in assessment and treatment, including: how bipolar disorder manifests clinically, how it appears different in children versus adults, how to use specialized self-report and parent-report measures to aid in differential diagnosis, and how to use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to address the specific needs of children and adolescents dealing with bipolar disorder. The presentation will include recent innovations in assessment and treatment developed by some of the leading research groups investigating juvenile bipolar disorder. Dr. Youngstrom specializes in the relationship of emotions and psychopathology, and the clinical assessment of children and families.
For more information on the workshop and how to register, please contact Janalee Orfanides, Training Institute Director, at 607-962-3148 or via email at email@example.com. Please note that Janalee is only in the office on Wednesdays and Fridays.
