Psychopharmacology Update: Focus on Refractory Cases and Longer Term Outcomes Over the past two decades, there has been a rapidly increasing interest in the pharmacotherapeutics and the important role they play in the treatment of children and adolescents with mental illnesses. Introductory pharmacotherapy institutes are helpful in orienting clinicians to first-line treatments; however, clinicians often face complicated cases requiring more advanced psychopharmacology, including monotherapy of novel agents or combined medication strategies. This Institute provides the clinician a higher level of understanding in the use of medications in general and, in particular, in refractory or more complicated children and adolescents with psychopathology. Presentations cover the application of fundamental principles of pharmacotherapy with a focus on difficult cases and an emphasis on longer-term outcomes. Recent pharmacotherapy data is presented where available.
