Visiting Professor Lecture Series

The Child Mind Institute Visiting Professor Lecture Series invites leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health to talk about the latest research and treatment protocols.

These experts have all conducted important research and have extensive clinical experience. They share their findings and expertise on a broad range of topics from anxiety and depression to temper outbursts and the effectiveness of parent-based treatment.

Specific subjects covered in this year’s series include pediatric onset of bipolar disorder, nonverbal learning disorder, narcolepsy, the effect of early-life stresses on mental and physical health, and the role of genetic testing in child psychiatry.

Visiting Professor Lectures at the Child Mind Institute are open to the public. They are also available via live webinar online. We offer continuing medical education credits for medical professionals. All lectures are on Friday mornings from 9:00 to 10:30am EST and include an open question and answer period.
