Event Description
Presented by: Patricia E. Barrett, PhD, LPCC-S, SW (Bio available online) Mental disorders are common among children in the United States, and can be particularly difficult for the children themselves and their caregivers. While mental disorders are widespread, the main burden of illness is concentrated among those suffering from a seriously debilitating mental illness. Just over 20 percent (or 1 in 5) children, either currently or at some point during their life, have had a seriously debilitating mental disorder. Depressive and anxiety disorders in children be can debilitating. This workshop will examine the differing ways children present with mood disorders, how to assess, and treatment techniques that are age appropriate. Forms of play therapy will be utilized and experienced during the presentation. (Many of the activities can be used with adolescents and adults.) Objectives: 1. Understand the differing ways children present with mood disorders. 2. Have a basic understanding of assessment tools that are age appropriate. 3. Take away techniques that help children improve their mood.
