Unique childhood and adolescent presentation of common psychiatric illnesses
Different classes, uses, and side effects of psychotropic medications used to treat children and adolescent behavioral health disorders
About This Sample Course
Despite relatively few medications with FDA approval, many are nonetheless used to treat child and adolescent mental health disorders. These are often “off-label” prescriptions — legally prescribed medications used for non-FDA approved indications.
It is critical that non-medical members of the treatment team have knowledge and understanding of medications, side effects, and how to communicate with clients, family members, and guardians about them.
This course uses interactive games, quizzes, and vignettes to help learners bring the information into real-world practice.
