Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Education Day

The Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Psychiatry invites you to attend a free patient and family education symposium Child & Adolescent Psychiatry Education Day.

This free event will provide an opportunity for people with substance use disorders, their family, friends, clinicians, and others to learn about substance use disorders and become actively involved in the treatment and recovery of someone they care about.

This exciting event will offer an update on new research findings and important clinical topics for parents, their family, friends, and others. The morning will feature various topics such as; Obsessive Compulsive, Mood, and Substance Use. We will also discuss Learning Disabilities and Working with Schools, as well as, Behavioral Interventions for Children with Food Allergies.

In the afternoon, our discussions will focus on; Parenting Children with Anxiety and Personality Disorders, Launching Transitional Age Youth, a Family Discussion and Resiliency Training for Youth.

We will offer interactive panel discussions throughout the day that include our presenting faculty and a parent panel. These times will give patients and families an opportunity to offer comments and ask questions.

This program is made possible through the generosity of the Joan and Leonard Engle Family Foundation.
