Childhood behavior disorders can be a challenging subset of disorders to diagnosis accurately. There are many factors that contribute to challenging behaviors in childhood and adolescence but determining how these behaviors match diagnostic criteria can be a difficult task for many mental health clinicians (Mash & Barkley, 2014). Current research also highlights the interconnection between behavior and mood disorders in childhood, which further complicates arriving at an accurate diagnosis (Masi, et al., 2015). This training aims to support mental health professionals in engaging in a differential diagnosis process specifically focused on behavior disorders in childhood. Topics will include connections and overlap of diagnostic criteria and behavioral manifestations of a number of DSM-V diagnoses, including Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), Conduct Disorder, Intermittent Explosive Disorder, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity (Disorder), and others. Appropriate assessment techniques and case examples will also be included.

Cognitive Behavior Institute is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education for psychologists. Cognitive Behavior Institute maintains responsibility for content of this program. Social workers, marriage and family therapists, and professional counselors in Pennsylvania can receive continuing education from providers approved by the American Psychological Association. Since CBI is approved by the American Psychological Association to sponsor continuing education, licensed social workers, licensed marriage and family therapists, and licensed professional counselors in Pennsylvania will be able to fulfill their continuing education requirements by attending CBI continuing education programs. For professionals outside the state of Pennsylvania, you must confirm with your specific State Board that APA approved CE's are accepted towards your licensure requirements. The Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) has a process for approving individual programs or providers for continuing education through their Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. ACE approved providers and individual courses approved by ASWB are not accepted by every state and regulatory board for continuing education credits for social workers. Every US state other than New York accepts ACE approval for social workers in some capacity: New Jersey only accepts individually approved courses for social workers, rather than courses from approved providers. The West Virginia board requires board approval for live courses, but accepts ASWB ACE approval for other courses for social workers. For more information, please see https://www.aswb.org/ace/ace-jurisdiction-map/. Whether or not boards accept ASWB ACE approved continuing education for other professionals such as licensed professional counselors or licensed marriage and family therapists varies by jurisdiction. To determine if a course can be accepted by your licensing board, please review your board’s regulations or contact them. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit.
