Section Information for Fall 2021

This is the first semester of a two-semester integrated course on the treatment of child and adolescent mental health problems. Both semesters are required for clinical psychology doctoral students. The primary goal of this course is to give students a foundation in the selection, evaluation, and application of empirically supported interventions for children and adolescents. Students will also learn about areas essential to ethical and competent care of children and adolescents (e.g., developmental issues, ethical and cultural considerations, process variables, school and psychiatric consultation, and case management). This two semester course series is not intended to provide an exhaustive coverage of all interventions available for child and adolescent mental health problems. This course will focus on the application of evidence based cognitive-behavioral interventions. However, it is expected that the skills developed in the course will provide a foundation for future training experiences and skill development.
