The REACH Institute provides primary care professionals – pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants and psychiatrists – with up-to-date training in the use of psychiatric medications for children and adolescents. This training is also useful to others, including internists, neurologists, etc.
Under the guidance of internationally known child psychiatrist Peter S. Jensen, M.D., The REACH Institute has partnered with leading researchers and practitioners to develop an innovative Mini-Fellowship in Primary Pediatric Psychopharmacology (PPP).
CHILD MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING FOR PRIMARY CARE
PPP training addresses the practical needs of busy, working clinicians. It is tailored to meet YOUR needs. Delivered by a world-class team of pediatricians, developmental-behavioral pediatricians, clinical nurse specialists, and child & adolescent psychiatrists, PPP training helps clinicians transform their practices, increase productivity, and improve work satisfaction.
PPP training helps primary care professionals gain confidence in delivering pediatric behavioral healthcare. Participants will learn to:
Correctly identify pediatric behavioral health problems such as childhood depression, ADHD, bipolar disorder, anxiety states (including PTSD), oppositional and conduct disorders and psychosis
Properly differentiate and distinguish pediatric health problems from normal developmental variations
Effectively manage psychopharmacology, including:
selecting medications for individual patients
initiating and tapering dosages
identifying and minimizing side effects
Implement a treatment plan with existing resources, including learning how to delegate tasks by creating treatment teams composed of family members, school personnel and other professional caregivers
