Overview

This is the seventh meeting of this highly acclaimed conference for which previous attendees have praised for its quality and usefulness. This year’s conference will feature lectures on a broad variety
of topics from a clinical and public health perspective.

Objectives

The objective of this conference is to equip primary care clinicians and other professionals with practical and updated strategies for the diagnosis and treatment of many of the most common childhood psychiatric conditions and problems. Specific topics to be addressed at this conference include DSM5, autism, and psychopharmacology.

Emphasis will focus on incorporating strategies within the practical confines of a busy outpatient setting. Treatment options, both pharmacological and nonpharmacological, will be presented.

At the end of the conference, participants should be able to:


1. Incorporate recent changes in the DSM5 into their diagnostic decision making.
