Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

The Affiliated Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry is based at the Institute of Living and does active inpatient consultation to the ED and the medical floors at Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Child and Adolescent Psychiatry offers a broad range of services throughout the program. Division members provide patient assessment, recommendations for referral to short-term treatment on a consultative basis, and in-depth hospitalization and outpatient care in dedicated units.

The evaluations of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry faculty are supported by the necessary diagnostic and collaborative services, including psychology, social services, rehabilitation, family support, neurology, and neuropsychology.

Resident, fellow, and medical student teaching occurs during didactic presentations, program rounds and team meetings, and through available electives in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. The focus is on identification and treatment of psychiatric problems that may affect patient symptomatology, on issues of compliance, on facilitation of interview skills, on familiarity with differential diagnosis, on assessment and triage of suicidal and dangerous patients, and on treatment planning and appropriate disposition.
