Psychopharmacology In The Classroom
|Presenters||Dr James Scott|
|Description||Ever changing research in psychopharmacology is impacting on the experience of diagnosed children and adolescents in the classroom. The collaborative framework of multi-disciplinary intervention requires that there is sufficient awareness amongst psychologists regarding the role of medications in the treatment of child and adolescent mental health issues.
James' presentation will provide an overview of current medications and the implications of these medications in the classroom.
|About the presenter(s)||James is a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the UQCCR whose main focus of research is broadly encapsulated under (i) child and adolescent mental health and (ii) early psychosis. James is also on the Clinical Governance Committee of the Nundah headspace and operates a private practice from the New Farm Consulting Suites.
He has extensive clinical and research experience in areas of child and adolescent mental health including depression, anxiety, aggression, self-harm, developmental disorders and pharmacotherapy. His research interests in early psychosis are prevention, phenomenology and treatment options.
James is currently engaged in a programme of research examining psychotic-like experiences in otherwise healthy individuals, mental health outcomes of bullying in adolescents, the role of cytokines in adolescent depression, the outcomes of early intervention in young children with autism and the outcomes of adolescents experiencing their first episode of psychosis. The programmes are a combination of clinical work with patient samples and epidemiological studies in collaboration with large mental health surveys and birth cohort studies.
