About This Event

Event Description:

Research in early onset mood disorders is geared towards using neuroscience to develop interventions that alleviate symptoms, promote healthy brain development, and treat behavioral and emotional difficulties as soon as they arise. This webinar considers the promise of utilizing neuroscience tools to aim for reliable and lasting improvements in symptoms for a large number of children and adolescents who experience a broad spectrum of mood problems. The presentation considers the importance of understanding and leveraging the placebo effect and measuring mechanisms of change, both in the way that treatments are configured and in the way that future clinical trials are designed.
