Mental Health Treatment in Children: Five Things That Work and Five That Don’t

Join the Child Mind Institute at #NatCon19

The evidence base supporting interventions for common child and adolescent mental health disorders is growing stronger. Yet unsupported and counterproductive treatments for children are commonly used due to widespread misinformation, stigma and fear. Master clinician Harold S. Koplewicz, MD, is the founding president of the Child Mind Institute and one of the nation’s leading child and adolescent psychiatrists. Join him as he explores the evidence base and provides details of proven behavioral and medication therapies for frontline professionals and administrators. You’ll gain the knowledge you need to pursue radically improved outcomes for children and families and more efficient use of clinician time.
