Description:

Research in recent years has shown that children and youth involved with child welfare are disproportionately prescribed psychotropic medications compared to their peers who are not involved with child welfare. While there is a role for these medications to help address certain illnesses, emotions, or behaviors, these medications can be harmful if used improperly. This class provides social workers the information needed to help provide proper case management for foster youth who may or may not require medication.
