'Are children in crisis? Is there an epidemic of mental health disorders within children and adolescents? This course will consider the prevalence, development, and classification of psychological syndromes of childhood and their impact on children, adolescents, families, schools and communities. Attention will be played to theories and research on the causes of childhood disorders and distress. We will also consider how 'abnormality' differs from 'normalcy' and how disorders of childhood differ from adult disorders. Topics will include treatment, public health, and public policy as they related to childhood psychiatric disorders.'
