Description

About the Presenter

Dr. Chris McGinnis is a licensed psychologist, Board Certified Behavior Analyst, and pediatric sleep researcher and serves as Clinic Director of Boys Town South Florida’s Behavioral Health Clinic headquartered in West Palm Beach with collocated services in primary care pediatric offices around the county. He speaks regularly on behavioral pediatric topics, effective parenting, distinguishing science from pseudoscience in pediatric medical and behavioral healthcare, and non-psychopathological alternatives to traditional conceptual systems in behavioral health. He has assisted in the development of the National Autism Center’s National Standards Project and has served as a subject matter expert for the Behavior Analyst Certification Board.

Training Description

Sleep problems in the pediatric population, particularly those with neurodevelopmental disorders, are quite common and yet they rarely garner the clinical attention they deserve. This talk is intended to help change that reality, at least in our region. Dr. McGinnis will present a science-based overview of pediatric sleep disorders and offer information on prevalence, sleep requirements by age, how sleep problems impact the child and parents biologically and neurologically, and means by which sleep problems may be allayed. Recommendations for further reading will be offered as well.

Training Objectives.

Participants will:

  • List common pediatric sleep problems and disorders
  • Explain how these problems and disorders affect daily functioning
  • Describe the means by which these problems and disorders are best addressed

3 SW/MH/M&F CEUs will be available. ($37.50 pre-registration; $45 onsite per day).
