Pediatric Psychiatry in Primary Care: Core Essentials

This series meets Thursdays (weekly) from 7:30 to 8:30 AM MT for seven weeks


CoPPCAP, the Colorado Pediatric Psychiatry Consultation & Access Program, is offering this seven-session ECHO series to give participants the baseline knowledge and skills needed to assess and treat pediatric mental/behavioral health conditions in primary care. Topics covered include assessment and screening, “What is Therapy," assessing and treating anxiety, ADHD and depression, assessing suicidality and more. Each session provides a brief didactic overview of the topic followed by participant initiated, robust, case-based discussion.
