On May 10th, 2013, ChildWise Institute will bring together a team of experts to present on co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders among children and youth.
This Conference is designed to expand understanding and awareness of co-occurring disorders and develop competencies for mental health professionals, chemical dependency professionals, psychologists, educators, juvenile justice and healthcare providers. Participants will be able to better understand and treat children diagnosed with mental health and substance abuse disorders. Normal adolescent brain development, including brain and socio-emotional maturation, will be explored and how substance use during this time impacts adolescent functioning and relates to developmental changes.
For this one day conference, we are very excited and thrilled to have two wonderful presenters:
- Dr. David Mee-Lee: Senior Vice President of the Change Companies©.
- Carolyn A. McCarty, Ph.D.: Research Associate Professor of Pediatrics and Adjunct Research Associate Professor of Psychology at the Seattle Children’s Hospital Center for Children Health Behavior and Development.
Registration will be open soon for this exciting educational event.
