Rational Use of Psychotropic Medications with Youth in ITC Settings

Practitioners are invited to view Dr Chris Bellonci’s presentation from ACWA’s recent webinar on the rational use of psychotropic medications with youth in ITC settings.

During his presentation, Dr Bellonci discussed current patterns of medication use and the opportunity to use residential stays as a setting for thoughtful medication reassessment.

Participants got the chance to develop critical thinking skills regarding the role of psychiatric medications in the treatment of mental illnesses and behavioral disorders in children and adolescents.

ACWA extends a warm thank you to Dr Bellonci for sharing his insight and helping to raise important awareness about the responsible use of these kind of medications in the context of children and young people.
