Current Controversies in the Use of Psychiatric Medications for Children and Youth:A Critical Debate
April 25th, 2013 • 11am-1pm CST
Over the last decade there has been an exponential increase in the prescribing of psychiatric medications to children and adolescents in the United States, particularly for children in the child welfare system. This corresponds to a trend in the field of viewing behavior as being biologically determined. For instance, there has been a 400% increase in the diagnosis of Bipolar disorder in children, some as young as two years old, over the last decade. This webinar will provide an opportunity to learn from two child psychiatrists with differing perspectives on what this trend means for children and youth with behavioral challenges.
Congratulations to AACRC's Public Policy Committee for another poignant piece to add to our Redefining Residential series.
