Adolescent Mental Health Curriculum

An Adolescent Mental Health Curriculum/A Starter Kit for Schools

Brochure
(pdf)

Clinicians from McLean Hospital and Children’s Hospital Boston have created
An Adolescent Mental Health & Wellness Curriculum: A Starter Kit for Schools
to guide educators in running a preventive mental health program either with or without outside (or onsite) mental health expertise. Its curriculum modules give adolescents language and insight to make better decisions and to know that problems are both temporary and treatable. The authors of this starter kit will spend the day with attendees in workshops on each curriculum module, covering stress, substance abuse, and depression.

This conference is suitable for all educators including student support coordinators, counselors, psychologists and nurses. Information will be presented in a user-friendly format that will encourage participation and will address specific questions about the rationale behind the curriculum and the pragmatics of implementing it in your schools.

Suicide Conference

Suicide
Advances in Research and Treatment
April 8, 2005 at the The Massachusetts Medical Society
Waltham, Massachusetts

Brochure (pdf)

According to the Centers for Disease Control, suicide took the lives of over 30,000 Americans in 2001. It is the 11 th leading cause of death for all Americans and the 3 rd leading cause of death for young people aged 15-24. More people die of suicide than homicide in the United States. In 2002, over 130,000 people were admitted to hospitals for suicide attempts and another 116,000 were seen in emergency rooms and released. We have all heard these and other statistics that identify the gravity of the problem. However, the bigger issue is not identifying that suicide is a problem, but the factors that might contribute to someone taking his/her life and what mental health professionals and others can do to prevent suicide.

McLean Hospital, an affiliated teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, has invited renowned experts in the field of suicide to bring you this conference. They will explore a wide range of areas, including the biological underpinnings of suicide, psychological and characterological aspects of suicidal patients, effective treatments for suicide prevention, and medicolegal liability for the clinicians treating these patients. Participants will leave the conference with a better understanding of what factors may lead some people to consider suicide and ways to intervene.

Borderline Personality Disorder

New Acceptance and Heightened Optimism
October 29-30, 2004 at The Marriott, Cambridge, MA

Brochure (pdf)

Borderline Personality Disorder is a diagnosis that can be dreaded and feared by many clinicians. These patients bring many issues to treatment and can present many challenges to clinicians. Because of these negative perceptions, the diagnosis is sometimes under-recognized and patients with this diagnosis can be marginalized. However, new understandings and insights into this illness bring hope to clinicians, patients, and their families.

McLean Hospital, an affiliated teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, is proud to offer this conference, bringing together world-renowned clinicians and researchers in the area of borderline personality disorder. The message of the faculty is clear; borderline personality disorder is a valid diagnosis that can be recognized and treated, and that patients can and do get better. Dr. John G. Gunderson, a pioneer in the field, will discuss the importance of speaking openly with patients and families about the diagnosis and will review individual psychodynamic psychotherapy with these patients. Drs. Peter Fonagy and Anthony Bateman will discuss their clinical and research findings in BPD. Dr. James A. Chu will discuss the distinctions between borderline personality disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. Drs. Alec L. Miller and Elizabeth T. Murphy will review different aspects of the widely used dialectical behavioral therapy. And Drs. Mary C. Zanarini and Frances R. Frankenburg will present their groundbreaking course on borderline personality disorder, addressing what every clinician, patient, and family needs to know about BPD.

Brochure (pdf)

Adolescence is a time of significant development offering great opportunities for growth along with daunting challenges for adolescents and their families, as well as the mental health care clinicians, healthcare practitioners, teachers, and mentors who interact with them. Today, many teens are at risk.

McLean Hospital is proud to offer this exciting continuing education program, covering cutting edge, state-of-the-art research and clinical intervention data across a wide spectrum of adolescent risk and opportunity. We will cover biological/brain research, self-esteem interventions, mind-body interactions, the scourge of violence and depression, and new models for intervention, as well as new approaches for understanding normal sexuality, eating disorders, and the central developmental factors in psychological and psychiatric treatment of adolescent dysfunction. From safe schools to disease appropriate medication; from resiliency factors to brain development, practitioners will receive the most salient information necessary to successfully intervene with teens at risk and forestall risk to teens struggling with the normative dangers in our 21 st century culture.
