About the Course:

This course is recommended for health care professionals, especially psychologists, counselors, social workers, and nurses who seek knowledge about understanding childhood depression and suicide. Whether unfamiliar or familiar with some of the concepts involved in this material, you can benefit from information in this course.
Young children do get seriously depressed, and many try to kill themselves. In Helping Your Child Cope with Depression and Suicidal Thoughts the authors, Shamoo and Patros, show: how to learn to talk, listen, and communicate effectively with a depressed child; what situations can cause a child or adolescent to wish to commit suicide; what signs to watch for; myths and misinformation about suicide; how to determine the risk of suicide; and How to intervene.

This course is based on the book, Helping Your Child Cope With Depression and Suicidal Thoughts created by Patros, Philip G., Ph.D. & Shamoo, Tonia K., Ph.D.
