Dr. Paul Sandor is returning with another Brain & Behaviour Conference (the last one being in 2015). This year’s event will focus on aggression in adolescents.

Aggression in adolescents is a wide range phenomena in day-to-day life. Due to the complexity of growing up and the constant changes in the brain that go along with it, managing aggression in young people can be difficult for parents, clinicians, teachers, etc. Aggressive behaviour appears in many psychiatric disorders and is commonly enhanced or diminished through a wide range of environmental factors or treatment methods.

This one day event aims to inform participants about new information regarding current research and methods of practice involved in adolescent aggression. We have assembled an excellent group of speakers who are all expert researchers in their own fields. Topics range from guidelines of pharmacotherapy, to the influence of substance abuse in male aggression, aggression in development disabilities, and many more!

Participants will increase their knowledge in recognising, assessing, and treating aggressive behaviour in young patients.

Who should attend? This program will be of benefit to child psychiatrists, family physicians, neurologists, paediatricians, psychiatrists, residents, and other health professionals involved in the treatment of adolescent psychiatric disorders.

This event will be accredited through the office of Continuing Education and Professional Development (CEPD).

We hope to see you on December 8th!
