To provide expert opinion on difficult management issues in the treatment of clinical issues in depression and neurodevelopmental disorders, with a clear focus on the clinical challenges and dilemmas faced by front-line children’s clinicians when general guidance is insufficiently specific.
Furthermore, with lectures and discussion forums led by very experienced clinicians, the course aims at providing C&A psychiatrists and paediatricians with senior opinion and guidance on grey areas of clinical practice; these are areas of difficult diagnosis or the management of challenging issues and treatment decisions, the sort of issues and cases that go beyond national guidelines and present real challenges and often leading academic/clinicians with expert experience and know-how can further explore the clinical issues.
