Anxiety and Depression in Adolescent Girls: Identifying and Responding to Mood Disorders in the School
  In this two-day class we will look at the common manifestation of clinical anxiety and depression in adolescent girls in the school setting including drug abuse, self mutilation, sexual acting out, panic attacks, truancy, sadness, social isolation and suicidal ideation. We will address how to differentiate mood disorders from "normal" adolescent moodiness and oppositional behavior. We will also look at treatment techniques and learn how motivational skills, bibliotherapy, cognitive, behavioral and interpersonal models of therapy are useful in effecting therapeutic change. An opportunity for both observation and hands on practice will be available.
