Psychopharmacology Webinar Series Module 4: Psychopharmacology and Mood Disorders (Recording)


In our webinar on Psychopharmacology and Mood Disorders, we focused on evidence-based assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of several different forms of anxiety, depression, and mood disorders that impact children, emphasizing behavioral, environmental, educational, parental, and psychopharmacological strategies. We discussed separation anxiety, phobias, social anxiety, general anxiety, and panic disorders, as well as depression and bipolar disorders, including the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment strategies. We also discussed and dispel myths surrounding these disorders and discuss the negative outcomes if a child is left untreated. We also explored how mood disorders are often diagnosed along with other disorders, including learning disabilities, ASD, ADHD, and other health concerns (i.e., asthma, diabetes, and trauma).
