Bullying and Other Disruptive Behaviors – Free Lecture
Parents, grandparents, teachers and others who work with children and adolescents know that young brains change at an extraordinary rate. What they may not know is that, according to a fact sheet from the National Institute of Mental Health, “half of all lifetime cases of mental illness begin by age 14.” This telling statistic is a powerful call for all adults to learn as much as they can about psychiatric illnesses in kids.
The University of New Mexico Department of Psychiatry’s Institute for the Development and Advancement of Education and Science (IDEAS) is dedicated to helping our community do just that – and so much more.
On November 2, 8:00-12:00 pm, IDEAS in Psychiatry hosts internationally respected epidemiologist and psychiatrist Young Shin Kim to discuss bullying and other disruptive behaviors at a free public lecture at UNM’s Continuing Education, Rooms G & H. Dr. Kim is Associate Professor at the Child Study Center at Yale University Medical School. She is particularly interested in risk factors predicting bullying and bullying as a risk factor for psychiatric illness or suicidal behaviors.
