Workshop Description

This updated workshop continues the collaboration between NHASP and Dr. Donnelly from DHMC. The first year of this workshop in 2022 proved the success of the format and provided powerful information on a range of diagnostic conditions. This updated event will continue to conversation!

This event will provide school based practitioners with practical guidance and best-practice recommendations regarding the assessment and treatment of common psychiatric disorders of childhood and adolescence.  Dr. Donnelly, together with the Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Fellows from Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center, will present 5 primary topical areas.

The instructional sessions will focus on topics such as ADHD, ODD/DMDD, Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders and Bipolar Disorder. Each session will include an overview of the disorder, diagnostic guidance such as free assessment tools, typical presentations, and comorbidities; then review evidence based treatments, and finally provide specific resources both within NH and on the internet. Question and answers will be part of each individual session.
