The module on understanding Adolescent Psychiatric Disorders in the Classroom is presented by Dr Robert Redwin, Child, Adolescent and Family Psychiatrist and Inpatient Director at Rivendell Child, Adolescent and Family Unit.
Dr Redwin takes the characters from the A.A. Milne’s novel Winnie the Pooh, to discuss some of the psychiatric disorders that staff may come across in the classroom.
He discusses characters such as Eeyore, who displays the symptoms of a major depressive disorder, Tigger with ADHD traits and Piglet with a generalised anxiety disorder.
Dr Redwin looks at the thoughts, feelings and associated behaviours of these disorders and how to recognise and develop strategies to manage them in the classroom.
This is a good introductory module on childhood and adolescent psychiatric disorder and aims to increase staff’s understanding and awareness.
