Innovative Interventions in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry: Extending Our Reach
Approaches to extending the reach of child and adolescent psychiatrists include applying usable evidence-based strategies to improve the general well being of children through prevention, making effective treatments more widely available through technology, and integrating new interventions for adolescent depression and selective mutism into clinical care. Participants learn how the PAX-Good Behavior Game is working to decrease problematic behaviors, increase self-control, and prevent childhood psychiatric disorders in elementary school; and get the latest information on family-based interventions for the treatment of selective mutism and the use of ketamine in refractory depression in adolescents. Participants learn how to extend and expand evidence-based mental health interventions through use of internet technology and telemedicine, how to engage adolescents and affect change with technology-based interventions, and how to implement a brief psychological intervention in the treatment of adolescents with major depression.
