Free Webinar: The Neurobiology of Disruptive Behavior Disorders: Implications for Intervention
Dr. Stuart White, National Institute of Mental Health will present the current state of the research on the development of behavioral problems, particularly conduct disorder, emphasizing genetic, cognitive, physiological and environmental risk and protective factors. Following will be a discussion of some of the evidence based approaches that are currently in use and these will be tied back to the underlying research. The importance of community-based, wide-ranging interventions will be explored. While specific intervention strategies will be discussed briefly, the focus on the talk will be on educating providers and parents about the underlying causes of behavioral problems and what good intervention strategies look like, based on the current research.
This webinar is free and open to parents and professionals. Space is limited. CEUs not available. Participation is both web-based and by telephone-only conference call.
