Are You Concerned About Your Child’s Irritability?
Wednesday, November 7, 2018 | 3:00 – 4:00 PM ET
Join NIMH for a webinar on irritability in children. Children pass through many phases of development as they grow up. It can be hard to know if a child is going through normal development or showing signs of something more serious. Occasional outbursts and irritability are a normal outcome of being tired, uncomfortable, or frustrated. In some children, it can be chronic and explosive. The webinar will cover common signs of severe irritability; how parents can help a child with severe irritability; what treatment options exist, such as cognitive behavioral therapy; and ongoing irritability research conducted at NIMH.
