1. Describe how assessment must be adapted to meet the needs of youth. Be specific.
2. The information by the CDC, Pajo and Cohen, and Townsend, Floersch and Findling speak to the social factors in diagnosis and definitions of ‘normal’ behavior and what is appropriate treatment. What are some of these social factors and definitions? Utilize at least two of our readings to discuss these. How might understanding these factors shape your approach to assessment, intervention, and conceptualization? As jumping off points consider things like the steep growth in medications for adhd, time spent with children, and how young people perceive their behavioral health needs.
3. What are the pros and cons of medicating children? Refer to the CDC guidance on behavioral intervention vs. medication. What do you notice?
