Helping Children & Adolescents with Emotional Problems

This special program was created to help inform parents and educators who are on the front line of dealing with children and teens with mental health issues and can often be among some of the first people to see that a child is struggling. Enhancing the potential for early intervention is important and because educational professionals have relationships with students and their families, they are often the people who guide students and their families to resources.

BBRF President & CEO, Dr. Jeffrey Borenstein and Dr. Daniel Pine will discuss the key symptoms and attributes associated with pediatric mood and anxiety disorders and share novel insights for improving treatment and offer tools to help families and educators address how best to help children and teens with emotional issues. The webinar will also highlight particularly pressing questions in research on pediatric mood and anxiety disorders while outlining an agenda for future research.

Throughout his career, Dr. Pine has engaged in research focusing on the epidemiology, biology and treatment of brain and behavior disorders in children and adolescents. His areas of expertise include biological and pharmacological aspects of mood, anxiety and behavioral disorders in children; the biological commonalities and differences among psychiatric disorders of children, adolescents and adults; and the interfaces between psychiatric and medical disorders. Currently, he and his group are examining the degree to which mood and anxiety disorders in children and adolescents are associated with underlying abnormalities in the amygdala, prefrontal cortex and other brain regions.

Prior to joining the NIMH, Dr. Pine spent 10 years at the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Columbia University.
