2017 Annual Meeting Institute 7 Notebook
Children and adolescents with intellectual deficits and co-occurring psychiatric disorders are underserved because training in this area can be limited, and because there is no current practice parameter to guide residents, early career psychiatrists, or the practicing child and adolescent psychiatrist in diagnosis and treatment. What constitutes an intellectual disability? How are psychiatric disorders identified in children and adolescents with intellectual disability? What are the ethical and forensic issues involved in treating this population? Participants acquire knowledge of DSM-5 criteria for intellectual disability; learn targeted neurobiological strategies and the modifications in assessment necessary to recognize, diagnose, and treat co-occurring psychiatric disorders; gain understanding of the effectiveness of evidence-based psychopharmacology, behavioral, and family interventions in a variety of situations; and discuss ethical and forensic issues that may be encountered during treatment.
