SYLLABUS ONLY: Child & Adolescent Psychopharmacology 2022

March 18, 2022 to March 20, 2022

Complex challenges and evolving guidelines are changing the way you care for young psychiatric patients. These areas include new diagnostic criteria, patient-centered care models, new trends in substance abuse, research advances on genetics, and much more. It is more important than ever to find education that not only covers all these topics, but is also innovative, engaging, and empowers you to reach improved outcomes.

That's why it's critical to attend this hands-on, comprehensive conference. It provides psychiatrists, pediatricians, primary care and family practice physicians, nursing professionals, psychologists, social workers, and other mental health professionals with insights to optimize your assessment, treatment, and management of child and adolescent patients with psychiatric conditions.

  • Meet and engage face-to-face with renowned clinician-researchers who share the latest advances in their fields
  • Find guidance for complex signs and symptoms such as emotional outbursts, mood swings, and strange eating habits that can be indicative of psychiatric disorders yet can also be part of normal child development
  • Translate the latest research into optimal assessment and treatment strategies for anxiety, substance abuse, depression, eating disorders, OCD, psychosis, and much more

Conference will be held in Eastern Standard Time (EST).
