Previous experience as being a teacher working in early childhood education classroom in Boston and in Saudi Arabia. I am currently working at King Abdulaziz Center for World Culture (Ithra), as a museum educator for ages seven to twelve years old. I joined the program because of my interest in child mental health, but also, as one of the people who work directly with children, I think that it’s my responsibility to be able to provide them with the mental support that they’re going to need. Also, child mental health is an important topic that is overlooked more often than not, which is not in the best interest of our children. I would also like to bring awareness to child mental health and how important it is to the community and society around me.

Psychologist specialized in child mental health disorders and a certified ADHD Parent Coach by ICF International coach federation organization. I work in a private clinic in Jeddah. The diploma is the first program specialized in child mental health in Saudi Arabia, and that what we need because the Saudi community lacks therapists specializing in children's disorders.

وتشتت الانتباه. أعمل كأخصائية نفسية في عيادة خاصة بمدينة جدة. دبلوم الصحة النفسية للأطفال يعتبر البرنامج الأول الذي يُعنى بالصحة النفسية للطفل

في السعودية، وهذا ما نبحث عنه ونحتاج إليه بسبب محدودية الأطباء والأخصائيين والمعالجين المتخصصين في الاضطرابات النفسية لدى الأطفال. فالانضمام

إلى هذا الدبلوم يعتبر فرصة ذهبية لأكون جزء فعال في هذا التغيير والتطوير في المجتمع السعودي.

 

Amirah Qadah

Pediatric senior registrar working at Maternity and Children Hospital in Makkah Al-Mukarramah, Saudi Arabia. I believe that this program will help me bridge gaps in my knowledge regarding mental health and give me the necessary tools to understand my patients better so that they can be treated more effectively. My solid background as a practicing pediatrician gives me a unique outlook as I can leverage my background to make better decisions when suggesting interventions to my patients. Thus, by combining the learning outcomes from the Child Mental Health diploma program and my background, I can make effective referrals for specialized services when needed.

طبيب نائب أول في طب الأطفال أعمل في مستشفى الولادة والأطفال بمكة المكرمة في المملكة العربية السعودية. أؤمن أنه من خلال الانضمام إلى دبلوم الصحة النفسية

للأطفال من جامعة الفيصل، سيساعدني في سد الثغرات المعرفية فيما يتعلق بالصحة النفسية ويعطيني الأدوات اللازمة لفهم مرضاي بشكل أفضل ويمكنني من علاجهم

بشكل أكثر فعالية. إن خلفيتي القوية كطبيب أطفال تمنحني نظرة فريدة حيث يمكنني الاستفادة من خلفيتي لاتخاذ قرارات أفضل عند اقتراح التدخلات لمرضاي.

وبالتالي، من خلال الجمع بين نتائج التعلم من برنامج دبلوم الصحة النفسية للأطفال وخلفيتي، يمكنني إجراء إحالات فعالة للخدمات المتخصصة عند الحاجة.

Halah Abdullah

Pediatric Registrar, working at Maternity and Children Hospital in Makkah. The main reason I joined the program is because I had an unfaltering interest in the child developmental psychology early during college years. Also, I truly believe in the mission that driven the program, also through my experience as a practicing pediatrician there is an immense need in the community for improved and more accessible services with more awareness regarding childhood mental and behavioral issues for early identification and intervention. I hope with my experience with pediatrics especially at a governmental institution will be valued to the program in providing an idea about the struggles those children with mental and behavioral issues and their families face until they receive the services they need.

نائب أول في طب الأطفال في مستشفى الولادة والأطفال بمكة المكرمة في المملكة العربية السعودية. السبب الرئيسي في انضمامي لبرنامج دبلوم الصحة النفسية للطفل

هو اهتمامي الشخصي والمستمر بعلم نفس تطور الطفل وما لاحظته في عملي في طب الأطفال وما شهدته من مصاعب يواجهها الأطفال الذين يعانون من مشاكل

تطورية سلوكية ونفسيه وكذلك ذويهم، ومن خلال اطلاعي على تفاصيل برنامج الدبلوم والأهداف التي دعت إلى إنشائه، وجدت أنني أرغب في تبني هذه الأهداف

وأرغب في المساهمة ولو بالقليل في أن أكون جزءا من تحقيقها لأبناء مجتمعي وذويهم.

 

Qasem Almulihi

Emergency Doctor at King Fahad University Hospital - Saudi Arabia. Mental health problems affect around one in six children. Children’s emotional wellbeing is just as important as their physical health , all children and youth have the right to happy and healthy lives and deserve access to effective care to prevent or treat any mental health problems that they may develop. Joining this program was of great importance to me, to be able to have the qualifications needed to help lead me towards my goals and interests in this field. Working in child mental health care and helping those in need is highly challenging, yet can bring unrivalled feeling of reward and satisfaction to be able to provide them with the care they need. Moreover, one the reasons I joined is increasing demand. To meet the nation's mental health needs, the demand for quality professionals in child mental health care is Increasing. A higher demand needs to be met with prepared qualified staff, so that we can help as many children suffering as possible. 

طبيب طوارئء في مستشفى الملك فهد الجامعي في المملكة العربية السعودية. تؤثر مشاكل الصحة النفسية على حوالي طفل واحد من كل ستة أطفال. إن الرفاه العاطفي للأطفال لا يقل أهمية عن صحتهم البدنية، فجميع الأطفال والشباب لهم الحق في حياة سعيدة وصحية ويستحقون الحصول على رعاية فعالة لمنع أو علاج أي مشاكل صحية ونفسية قد يصابون بها. كان الانضمام إلى هذا البرنامج ذا أهمية كبيرة بالنسبة لي، أن أكون قادرا على الحصول على المؤهلات اللازمة للمساعدة في قيادتي نحو أهدافي واهتماماتي في هذا المجال. إن العمل في مجال رعاية الصحة النفسية للأطفال ومساعدة المحتاجين أمر صعب للغاية، ومع ذلك يمكن أن يجلب شعورا لا مثيل له بالمكافأة والارتياح ليتمكنوا من تزويدهم بالرعاية التي يحتاجونها. وعلاوة على ذلك، فإن أحد أسباب انضمامي هو زيادة الطلب لتلبية احتياجات الصحة النفسية في البلاد، يتزايد الطلب على المهنيين الجيدين في مجال رعاية الصحة النفسية للأطفال. وينبغي تلبية الطلب المتزايد بموظفين مؤهلين مستعدين، حتى نتمكن من مساعدة أكبر عدد ممكن من الأطفال

TERM 1 DISCLOSURES

Disclosure Information

In accord with the disclosure policy of McLean Hospital as well as guidelines set forth by the Accreditation Council on Continuing Medical Education, all people in control of educational content, including speakers, course directors, planners, and reviewers, have been asked to disclose all relevant financial relationships with commercial interests of both themselves and their spouses/partners over the past 12 months, as defined below:              

Commercial Interest

The ACCME defines a “commercial interest” as any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services, used on, or consumed by, patients. The ACCME does not consider providers of clinical service directly to patients to be commercial interests. For more information, visit www.accme.org.

Financial relationships

Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit.  Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected.  ACCME considers relationships of the person involved in the CME activity to include financial relationships of a spouse or partner.

Relevant financial relationships 

ACCME focuses on financial relationships with commercial interests in the 12-month period preceding the time that the individual is being asked to assume a role controlling content of the CME activity. ACCME has not set a minimal dollar amount for relationships to be significant.  Inherent in any amount is the incentive to maintain or increase the value of the relationship. The ACCME defines “’relevant’ financial relationships” as financial relationships in any amount occurring within the past 12 months that create a conflict of interest.

Conflict of Interest

Circumstances create a conflict of interest when an individual has an opportunity to affect CME content about products or services of a commercial interest with which he/she has a financial relationship.

The following planners, speakers, and content reviewers, on behalf of themselves and their spouse or partner, have reported financial relationships with an entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services (relevant to the content of this activity) consumed by, or used on, patients:

Ineligible Companies 

The ACCME defines an “Ineligible company” as “those whose primary business is producing, marketing, selling, re-selling, or distributing healthcare products used by or on patients.”  For more information, visit

accme.org/standards

Financial Relationships

Financial relationships are those relationships in which the individual benefits by receiving a salary, royalty, intellectual property rights, consulting fee, honoraria, ownership interest (e.g., stocks, stock options or other ownership interest, excluding diversified mutual funds), or other financial benefit.  Financial benefits are usually associated with roles such as employment, management position, independent contractor (including contracted research), consulting, speaking and teaching, membership on advisory committees or review panels, board membership, and other activities from which remuneration is received, or expected. 

Mitigation of Financial Relationships

All financial relationships are reviewed to determine which ones are relevant, and then measures are taken to mitigate all relevant financial relationships and ensure that they do not insert commercial bias into the content of the education.   

The following planners, speakers, content reviewers, and others in control of educational content have reported financial relationships with ineligible companies over the past 24 months. Measures have been taken to mitigate the impact of these financial relationships on the educational content and ensure that they do not insert commercial bias into the content of this education.
