When Offered: Fall
The main learning objective is for students to become well versed in the knowledge necessary to appropriately select empirically supported interventions for young people across settings (clinics, communities) and systems of care (e.g., hospitals, schools). Second, ample time will be devoted to the competent application of this knowledge (e.g., clinical competencies) when treating the most prevalent childhood conditions and related issues, including autism spectrum disorders, depression, anxiety, disruptive behavioral disorders (e.g., ADHD, ODD, CD, substance abuse) and the transdiagnostic features across these conditions (e.g., difficulties with behavioral and emotional regulation).
Prerequisites: PSY 6105  or equivalent, or approval of instructor.
