Irritability and resultant aggression are the most common reasons that children are brought for mental health evaluation. Since irritability is found in many disorders--including bipolar disorder, autism, ADHD, ODD, and the new disruptive mood dysregulation disorder--clinicians often struggle to understand what disorder(s) involving irritability an individual child has--and how to help. In this session, we will provide an evidence-based up-to-date discussion of the diagnosis and treatment of irritability in children and adolescents--with plenty of time for interactive discussions of attendees' experiences and questions, and also of cutting-edge research on this topic by Bradley's PediMIND Program ( www.pedimind.org).
Target audience: Psychologists, physicians, social workers and other interested health care professionals
