Workshop: When to Seek Professional Help for Your Child
It is the very rare parent who, at some point during a child’s development, does not have some difficulty in managing the child. As a part of the Exceptional Parenting Program by Tokyo English Life Line (TELL), Dr. Rachel G. Klein, Ph. D. will present a workshop discussing the various difficulties that children typically experience, with an emphasis on school aged children. At what point does ordinary nuisance behavior become a concern? An important issue Dr. Klein will address is how to know when a child’s difficulties signal that parents should consider seeking professional attention.
Dr. Klein has been an active researcher in child psychiatry for several decades. She has conducted large scale investigations of the diagnosis and treatment of children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, learning disorders, anxiety disorders, and depression. Prior to joining the New York University Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry in 1999, Dr. Klein was a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University, and Director of Clinical Psychology at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and New York Presbyterian Hospital. She has authored over 200 articles and seven books, and she currently serves as the Fascitelli Family Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and Director of the Anita Saltz Institute for Anxiety and Mood Disorders in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, New York University School of Medicine.
