Psychotic Disorders in Youth: Diagnostic and Treatment Considerations

Psychosis is defined as a significant disturbance in reality testing, and includes symptoms such as delusions, hallucinations, disorganized speech and behavior, as well as negative symptoms such as social withdrawal and cognitive impairments. Psychosis, though not common in children, may present as part of other significant psychiatric conditions. This Institute presents the diagnostic challenges, scientific advances, and evidence-based treatments for youth with psychotic illnesses. Participants learn to identify psychotic symptoms in children and adolescents; describe developmental and diagnostic considerations, as well as comorbid conditions; and apply evidence-based interventions in clinical practice. Sessions conclude with panel discussions, opening the floor to questions.
