Christine Miller, ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION IN ADOLESCENTS
Drug abuse, self mutilation, panic attacks, truancy, sadness, social isolation and suicidal ideation can all be manifestations of clinical anxiety and depression in adolescents. This workshop will address how to differentiate mood disorders from "normal" adolescent moodiness and oppositional behavior. Descriptions of treatment tailored to this developmental period will be explored.
