Combinations of medical and psychiatric symptoms can arise from several etiologies: primary medical illnesses with resultant psychiatric symptoms (e.g., depression stemming from poor glycemic control and social isolation in a child with Type I diabetes); psychological symptoms presenting as and/or precipitating physical symptoms (e.g., anxiety presenting as abdominal pain), and medical and psychiatric symptoms presenting simultaneously (e.g,. a pain disorder involving both medical illness and a psychological component). In this workshop, participants will learn about developmental and therapeutic issues that are specific to populations with these combinations of symptoms. Emphasis will be placed on how to identify core individual and family issues and apply evidenced based interventions including cognitive-behavioral therapy and family-based interventions.
