On Wednesday, December 3, 2008, Dr. Elizabeth Kastelic (Assistant Professor, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Johns Hopkins University & Hospital) will be providing a workshop on the presentation, course, risk factors and treatment of Mood Disorders in Children and Adolescents. The workshop will be held at the Doylestown Hospital Wellness Center, 847 Easton Road, Warrington PA. The Workshop will be from 8:30 AM to 12 Noon.
Dr. Kastelic is an experienced practitioner, teacher, and researcher in the treatment of Mood Disorders in children and adolescents. I am looking forward to her presentation and comments/ questions from those lucky enough to participate in this workshop!
This BLOG is an open forum for discussion of the workshop by participants.
Dr. Kastelic provided a wonderful conference. Are there any doubts about he prior award as “Teacher of the Year”? I was sorry that she was not able to present all of her material from the handouts during the three hours alloted for her presentation.
I was especially interested in her questions regarding the “overused: diagnosis of Bipolar disorder in children without careful consideration of more treatable, differential diagnosis of ADHD and Depressiuon in this age group. Any thoughts?
