Course Description

CE Course Description

The purpose of this intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the Center for Mental Health in Schools at UCLA, is to provide an overview of psychosocial problems and disorders that occur among school-aged youth. Specific considerations for attention problems, conduct and behavior problems, anxiety problems, affect and mood disorders, and social and interpersonal problems in children are presented as well as ways to increase the school’s capacity to prevent and ameliorate such problems. Additionally, the role of the environment in commonly identified social problems is discussed as well as how stressful events in a youngster’s life can lead to common behavioral responses.
