Description

Irritability in kids has been a personal and professional interest of Dr. Sharp's for nearly two decades. He went to grad school at a time when pediatric bipolar disorder was the “hot” diagnosis, only to find out several years later that the irritability so often seen as 'representative' of bipolar in kids did not actually predict a bipolar diagnosis during adulthood. The advent of disruptive mood dysregulation disorder advanced our knowledge quite a bit, yet these irritable kids continue to fall in a gray area as far as diagnosis and treatment are concerned.

For this course, Dr. Melissa Brotman sits down with Dr. Sharp to talk about her work with pediatric mood concerns, with a focus on the irritability and angry outbursts that so many clinicians see.

Some of the highlights from this conversation include:

  • The history and classification of pediatric mood disorders
  • The relationship between irritability, anxiety, and depression
  • Melissa’s exposure-based treatment with angry kids
  • Ecological Momentary Assessment and app-based mood tracking

Target audience: Psychologists, mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, social workers, addiction counselors, nurses.

This CE course is designated as beginner.
