Josh Klapperick 0 14

Research is increasingly documenting the effects of reproductive hormones in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and depression. Is it Premenstrual Syndrome, anxiety, or both?

In this workshop we will explore these kinds of differential diagnoses.

You will learn how efficacy of medication in females depends on the stage of the reproductive life cycle and how moods are affected by hormones in the adolescent female brain. You will also learn how methods of treatment should differ for women because of hormonal effects on the brain.

Those disorders specific to women, such as post-partum mood disorders, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, and more will be included in the discussion.

Often times you may feel as though you are working in a pharmacy. Youth are taking an array of prescription drugs for everything from ADHD to PTSD to PDD.

In this workshop you'll learn about the most common psychiatric disorders seen in the student population, a basic understanding of what the young person is experiencing with these illnesses, and the drugs used to treat them.

The workshop will include the indications for these medications, how they affect the brain, their desired effects, and their possible side effects. You will learn to observe behaviors that might be a response to medication and the language to use to describe the symptoms so that prescribers and parents can best respond to the needs of the student/client.
