Course Overview

“Mental disorders among children are described as serious changes in the way children typically learn, behave, or handle their emotions, which cause distress and problems getting through the day.”1 It is highly recommended that the mothers of a child or adolescent with a mental health disorder be as involved in the treatment as possible.2
The goal of this occupational therapy for mothers continuing education program is to explain why when treating pediatric clients with mental health disorders an occupational therapy evaluation and intervention should include the occupations embedded in the role of mother or whomever serves as the primary caregiver
