About this event


Facilitated by experienced UCSF pediatric & child psychiatry faculty who provide clinical care and consultation in primary clinics, FQHCs and school-based health centers, and who routinely teach and consult with inter-professional teams and learners, this in-person ‘boot-camp’ will engage attendees in interactive didactics and case-based small- and large-group discussion. Upon completion, attendees will feel more skilled and confident in applying their knowledge to real-life clinical presentations of:

ADHD with comorbidities like high ACEs, anxiety, disruptive behavior and learning challenges.

Depression & anxiety in children and adolescents, including both psychosocial and pharmacological treatments.

Role of mental health stigma in practice.

Communication strategies for engaging patients and families in collaborative decision-making around mental health concerns.
