Differential Diagnosis & the DSM 5 with Youth & Families 
6 CA BBS CEUs

Cl# SW760i    Thursday, Sept 29, 2016   9 AM - 4 PM 
CCSF Evans Campus Rm 106: 1400 Evans St. @ Mendell St.

The primary goal of all recent editions of the Diagnostic Statistical Manual for mental disorders (DSM) has been to improve consistency of diagnosis provided by different providers. The quality of mental health services can be negatively impacted when there have been different diagnoses given to the same patient by different providers. This situation is made more difficult when common mental health symptoms (i.e. depression, anxiety, and aggressive behavior) overlap with multiple mental disorders.  

Review the DSM 5 with attention to using differential diagnoses in improving the diagnosis of children, adolescents, and adults. Learn a step-by-step rule-out to follow at the beginning of the differential diagnosis process. Use decision trees to make differential diagnoses based on observed primary mental health symptoms. Review differential diagnosis based on the primary mental disorders seen in children, adolescents, and adults. Practice using differential diagnosis with your clients and participate in discussions of client case studies.

Instructor Pamela Parkinson, PhD, LCSW   
Cl# SW380j   Friday, October 7, 2016; 10 AM – 4:30 PM
150 Executive Park Blvd., San Francisco; First Floor Conference Room   

For years we have been told to be “strength-based and client centered”, however, we have not typically been told what this really means.  In our field, we often focus on the negative events that have occurred or the pathology that a client and their family members seem to present with.  We forget, in the midst of all of the difficulties, that everyone has strengths and abilities and good intentions.  This training focuses on the importance of teaming with family members from the beginning and offers a variety of case plan strategies to create a family friendly process that will increase our ability to engage effectively with families who just don’t want to work with us!  We will also clarify what it means in terms of our work to be “strength-based”.

Mental health, an essential part of children's overall health, is a complex interactive relationship with a child’s physical health and their ability to succeed in school, at work and in society. Contrary to common belief, infants and toddlers can suffer from mental health issues; unfortunately they are unlikely to receive treatment that could prevent long lasting developmental effects. Many more are at risk of developing a disorder due to risk factors associated with their biology or genetics; their families, schools, communities; and their peers.
