Interventions in Child Mental Health (Cohort 2)

This course will review the theoretical basis and practical applications of evidence-based psychotherapies for children and adolescents.  It will focus on well-established therapeutic skills for children with mild-to-moderate mental health needs and their families. The course will review case conceptualization and the application of cognitive-behavioral skills including relaxation and mindfulness skills to reduce physiologic arousal, cognitive strategies to address unhelpful thought processes and enhance coping and resilience, and behavioral skills to reduce maladaptive avoidance, increase engagement in pleasant and meaningful activities, and enhance positive parenting practices. 

The presenter will review strategies to enhance child and family engagement and address common challenges when conducing therapy with youth.  The course will incorporate online and in-person didactic training with role plays to illustrate key concepts, and regular group supervision calls to discuss cases and facilitate application of therapy skills in a culturally informed manner.

An array of reading resources, videos and experiential approaches are used to enhance the learning experience. Virtual discussion follows each lecture during the same week. Each virtual discussion enhances the knowledge and skill acquisition with the exchange of cultural definitions, cultural assessment of family values, codes of conduct, rules and expectations to formulate intervention strategies.
