Audio-Digest Foundation announces the release of Pediatrics Volume 59, Issue 31: Review of Oppositional Behavior in Preschool-Age Children, Part 1: Diagnostic Tools and Techniques.
The goal of this program is to improve the diagnosis of oppositional behavior in preschool-age children. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Describe the differential diagnosis of oppositional behavior.
2. Identify signs and symptoms of oppositional defiant disorder.
3. Recognize signs and symptoms of comorbid conditions that may be contributing to oppositional behavior, including attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
4. Choose appropriate questionnaires and interviewing techniques to elicit relevant family dynamics surrounding oppositional behavior.
5. Counsel parents on initial management of oppositional behavior.
The original programs were presented by Barbara J. Howard, MD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, and Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrician, Baltimore, MD; Senior Scientist, Medstar Health Research Institute, Hyattsville, MD.
