Restricted to Year IV students.

This course integrates theory and practice of interventions for child and adolescent problems. A variety of theoretical models, empirically supported treatments, and treatment modalities are presented. Students learn specific techniques to enhance communication with children and adolescents, so that they can successfully apply a variety of interventions in their work. The need to work cooperatively with parents, schools, and pediatricians is addressed. By the end of this course, students will be able to design and implement treatment programs for children and adolescents that are consistent with their assessment data and case conceptualization.
