Identifying and Treating Bipolar Disorders in Youth

Green Clock Hours: 1.25

As a clinician, you have likely met children and adolescents who have been misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder. You may also encounter youth who have undiagnosed bipolar disorder and are receiving treatment for some other condition.

Both of these circumstances are detrimental to the well-being of the youth you serve. Appropriate treatment hinges on providers recognizing the correct diagnosis. Untreated or delayed treatment for bipolar disorders can have dire consequences, including severely impaired functioning, the development of other psychiatric disorders, and suicide.

In this course, you will learn to identify the symptoms of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents. It is important to know how to differentiate bipolar disorders from other conditions with overlapping symptoms. You will learn about current guidelines for the pharmacological treatment of these conditions and the key components of effective psychosocial interventions.

The goal of this course is to provide knowledge to addictions, behavioral health counseling, marriage and family therapy, nursing, psychological, and social work professionals in health and human services settings about identifying and treating bipolar disorders in youth.
