This course is designed to provide an overview of essential skills for assessing children and adolescents. This course is geared toward master’s level clinicians who already have some experience and competence in child/adolescent treatment. The course will include a lecture portion, a case example, and a brief question/answer component. 

During this course, participants will receive an overview of common childhood disorders and presenting problems such as ODD, ADHD, PTSD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, OCD, anxiety, and depressions. Participants will learn about the elements of an accurate clinical assessment. They will be introduced to psychometric instruments such as the Beck Youth Inventories, the Connors Inventory, the UCLA PTSD Reaction Index, The Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist, and the Social Responsiveness scale. Participants will also learn about the limitations of those instruments in the formulation of a clinical assessment.
