Research Institute: Treatment Updates in Pediatric Depression and Suicidality
The Research Institute provides updates for clinicians and researchers on the detection, evaluation, and treatment of depression and suicidality in children and adolescents. Participants learn about the latest research and become more familiar with evidence-based methodology. The first half of the Institute focuses on evidence-based and emerging treatments for depression, including pharmacological treatment of pediatric mood disorders; the possible relationship between antidepressant medications and suicidality; and the effects of ketamine as a treatment for depression and suicidal ideation in adolescents. The second half focuses on suicidality with presentations looking at evidence-based practices for suicide risk screening, assessment, and intervention, including emergency department screening; mood disorders and treatment of sexual minority youth; and the efficacy of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) as a treatment for adolescents with suicidal behavior. A clinical case presentation demonstrates how current research in the area is relevant to everyday practice in child and adolescent psychiatry.
