Institute 6: Early Recognition and Intervention for Youth at High Risk for Depression and Bipolar Disorder
Participants learn to recognize early symptoms of mood disorders in youth and to administer psychotherapeutic and pharmacologic interventions that are effective for those at risk for BD. A novel, step-by-step approach to identification and assessment of risk level is presented; the role of family therapy in treating putatively prodromal youth is considered; cognitive behavioral therapy and Interpersonal and Social Rhythm Therapy are explored; the concept of mindfulness as it applies to stress reduction in youth with mood disorders is presented; pharmacotherapeutic and pharmacologic interventions are discussed; and an overview of the neural structures and circuits involved in mood regulation and dysregulation is presented.
