Clinical Practicum 1: We Never Used to See This Before... Dealing With a New Generation of Mental Health Crises

The objective of this Clinical Practicum is to help child and adolescent psychiatrists face an array of difficult problems not faced by prior generations of clinicians. These include: children discharged from inpatient settings on multiple psychotropic medications yet still doing poorly, children who are victims of sexual trafficking, unaccompanied minors entering the US with psychiatric illness, children who require multiple psychiatric admissions in a given year, and children in rural areas with serious disorders who lack access to care. Through case presentations, methods for dealing with these complex situations are discussed. These include a child discharged on seven medications yet still doing poorly, a six year old forced into sexual trafficking, a boy with 14 hospitalizations in one year, and two children with severe psychiatric illness who live in isolated areas. Unique times require unique interventions but attendees learn how the careful application of clinical skill can guide the interventions where the evidence base is lacking.
