Introduction

The Child and Adolescent Bipolar Spectrum Services (CABS) of UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital is proud to present the third conference on early identification, risk assessment, and management of bipolar spectrum disorders in youth. Early and correct diagnosis is critical in youth with mood dysregulation; however, it can often take up to ten years to identify and treat bipolar disorders. Timely diagnosis and treatment are critical because bipolar disorder significantly affects the child’s developmental trajectory and increases risk for suicidality, substance abuse, behavior problems and medical illnesses. 

In this conference, CABS faculty will address the following: 
1) Differential diagnosis from disorders such as Disruptive Mood Dysregulation Disorder (DMDD) and Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); 2) Recognition of the risk factors and early signs of the disorder, and what to do to prevent or delay onset of the illness; 3) Identification and prevention of associated medical problems; 4) Pharmacological and psychosocial
treatment of the acute symptoms of bipolar disorder and how to prevent recurrences. 

The keynote presentation will be given by Boris Birmaher, MD a Professor of Psychiatry in the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at UPMC Western Psychiatric Hospital, endowed chair in early-onset bipolar disease.


Who Should Attend

The conference is designed to present the latest research and clinical knowledge regarding mood dysregulation to a wide audience: Professionals (Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Counselors, Psychopharmacologists, Physician Assistants working in Mental Health Settings, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners, Psychiatric Nurses, Social Workers, Teachers, Residents, Fellows, Trainees, Students, and Peer Specialists), Patients, and Families.

 

Objectives

At the completion of the program, participants should be able to:

  1. Identify core features of mania for accurate diagnosis (e.g. episodicity, elated mood, irritability, functional impairment) and identify risk factors associated with increased risk to develop bipolar disorder in children and adolescents

  2. Identify comorbid psychiatric and medical conditions, and differentiate manic, hypomanic, and mixed mood presentations from other common psychiatric diagnoses and normal development. 

  3. Identify appropriate assessment/monitoring instruments, and evidence-based treatment options & levels of care for youth with bipolar spectrum disorders
