As you continue to prepare for the in-residence component of this


As you continue to prepare for the in-residence component of this course, be aware of how this week’s Learning Resources address psychopharmacology issues of specific age groups. How might you adapt your patient interactions and treatment strategies with children and adolescents when you address topics from earlier weeks in the course, such as depression, anxiety, or chronic pain?

For this Discussion, review this week’s Learning Resources. Select at least one topic from the course readings on child and adolescent psychopharmacology that you found challenging, and reflect on why you found this to be so. Also consider any other topics that have been challenging this term. Finally, think about what topics you hope to cover in more depth during the in-residence component.

Write a description of at least one topic from the Learning Resources on child and adolescent psychopharmacology that you found challenging, and explain why. Then, explain any other areas or topics in this course that have been challenging. Finally, explain what topics you hope to cover in more depth in-residence.
