This course is designed for pediatricians, family practitioners, and advanced practice providers delivering direct care to children.

The 4-hour virtual conference with live Q&A will highlight common developmental-behavioral conditions, their etiology, identification and management, and feature opportunities to apply knowledge in clinical situations.

The program will utilize case studies and question/answer format in addition to PowerPoint presentations.

The goal of this seminar is to equip primary care providers to assess, identify and manage developmental and behavioral problems which present between birth and age 18.
Upon completion of the activity participants should be able to:
  • Discuss the impact of persistent specific language impairment on a child’s reading/written language and educational outcomes, and the impact on adult psychosocial functioning and independence.
  • Review the human stress response and the connections with ACES, toxic stress and resilience, and describe the role of attachment or safe, stable and nurturing relationships in resilience and trauma.
  • Identify engagement strategies to use to promote trauma-informed care, discuss surveillance and screening and the role of each in care, and describe practical tools to use in the office or hospital setting.
  • Clinicians will be able to describe the 5 steps to raising an organized “thinking” child, including developmentally appropriate strategies to build executive functions.
  • Describe how the human stress response contributes to burnout and secondary traumatic stress, the role of leadership in the promotion of resilience, and strategies which promote the affiliate response in the workplace.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and Scottish Rite for Children. The University of Texas Southwestern is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
UT Southwestern designates this live activity for a maximum of 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

UT Southwestern certifies that non-physicians will receive an attendance certificate stating that they participated in the activity that was designated for 4.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM.

The presentations “Putting on Your Trauma Lens”, “Beyond ACE’s: How to Provide Trauma Informed Care”, and “Burnout and Secondary Traumatic Stress: Caring for the Clinician Too” have been designated by UT Southwestern for 2.25 credit hours in medical ethics and/or professional responsibility.

Because this course is meant to educate clinicians with what is currently in use and what may be available in the future, there may be “off-label” uses discussed in the presentations. Speakers have been requested to inform the audience when off-label use is discussed.

It is the policy of ACCME that participants in CME activities should be made aware of any affiliation or financial interest that may affect the speaker’s presentations. Each speaker has completed and signed a conflict of interest statement. The faculty members’ relationships will be disclosed in the handout.
