Although a common reason for individuals seeking mental health treatment, depressive symptoms are tied to a number of different disorders. Due to the number and complexity of relevant disorders, determining an accurate diagnosis for depressive symptoms can be challenging for mental health clinicians. The diagnostic criteria for many depressive disorders overlap with other disorders and conditions creating a need for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment recommendations (Castro et al., 2019; Hirschfeld, 2014; McIntyre et al.,, 2019; Perrotta, 2019). This can be especially difficult when diagnosing depressive disorders in children and adolescents (Birmaher & Brent, 2007). This training aims to support mental health clinicians in the differential diagnosis process specific to depressive disorders in children, adolescents, and adults. Topics will include the diagnosis of specific depressive disorders, comorbid disorders, and assessment strategies that can aid in the differential diagnosis process.

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.
