Institute 5 (ticket)
Pediatric Sleep Disorders
The goal of this Institute is to provide child and adolescent psychiatrists and other professionals with valuable, advanced knowledge on the role of sleep in neurobehavioral regulation in children and to review clinical characteristics and treatment options of pediatric sleep disorders commonly seen in children with psychiatric conditions. Research demonstrates that an appropriate level of quality sleep is necessary for a healthy and productive lifestyle, academic success, and emotional well-being; these are three key elements associated with successful development. A considerable proportion of children and adolescents suffer from sleep disorders and obtain less sleep than they need, and are thus chronically sleep-deprived. This Institute reviews the role of sleep in the emotional and behavioral development of children and adolescents and provides strategies in the identification, prevention and treatment of sleep-related conditions in children with psychiatric disorders or medical disorders. This knowledge helps the participants develop practical tools to successfully recognize and manage sleep problems in their clinical practice and to significantly improve treatment outcomes and quality of life for their patients.
