Location: Westin La Paloma Tucson, AZ
Date/Time: Friday, May 9, 2014, Dr. Brunner will be speaking during 1:10pm – 2:10pm, Breakout Session III
Focus: Help parents and childcare professionals identify and solve common but camouflaged developmental problems that typically fly under everyone’s radar. These are the problems that diagnostic systems have not categorized, yet these problems are common and if not caught early lead to debilitating problems.
Who should attend? All who are interested in compelling and diverse mental health topics specific to women. The target audience is parents, teachers, physicians (family practitioner, obstetrician/gynecologist, internist, psychiatrist, neurologist, etc.), nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, nurses, midwives, psychologists, social workers, counselors, school administrators and staff, and interested community.
As a result of completing this educational symposium, participants will be better able to:
- Recognize and evaluate psychiatric disorders and other topics of clinical importance relevant to women with mental health issues or concerns based on updated clinical practices, research, and health perspectives particular to women.
- Understand these topics in a broad context of biological, psychological, and social factors that are relevant to women.
- Apply the information and knowledge obtained from this symposium to better inform the care and treatment of women with mental health concerns.
