NYIPT Proudly Presents a 3-hour Continuing Education class for Social Workers

a 3 hour Continuing Education Course for Social Workers


Dr. J. Rebecca Weis

Director and Chief of Service in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Bellevue Hospital Center and at Hassenfeld Children's Hospital, and Assistant Clinical Professor in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at NYU Langone School of Medicine.  



Sunday January 26, 2020 10am-1pm

Brooklyn Learning Center, 147 Lincoln Place, Brooklyn, NY 11217


While psychotherapy interventions are the first-line treatment for children experiencing mental health challenges, there are some cases where the course of action might include meds.  This workshop will focus on sharing information about when medication may be considered in early childhood mental health.


v An experienced psychiatrist will talk about the assessment and decision-making process that is essential when working with young children.


v We'll discuss some of the most commonly used medications for specific diagnoses and address issues in working with parents so that they feel comfortable making decisions about medicating their child.


v Two clinical cases will be presented and Dr. Weis will participate in a dialogue about the cases .


Participants  will have adequate time to ask questions and share additional case vignettes.
