This workshop reviews common paths that lead children into violence toward others and toward themselves. Psychosocial, somatic and pharmacologic treatment approaches are compassionately and realistically explored. Potential development of psychopathology, irritability, and psychosis are discussed, as well as environmental and biological links to Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs). Parental discipline strategies and substance abuse, as distinct influential factors, are also integrated into this discussion. The “duty to warn” (Tarasoff v. Regents), as a clinical obligation, will be reviewed. Attendees are encouraged to bring clinical examples of violence issues for discussion.
Includes One Hour of Ethics
