What to know and what to do for students with internalizing disorders.
It can be difficult to identify students who are struggling with an internalizing disorder. Internalizing disorders are so named because individuals rarely demonstrate overt behaviors that let others know they are in pain. The most common internalizing disorders are anxiety and depression; however, self-harm behavior and suicide are also important to consider. This training will highlight symptoms consistent with anxiety and depression, and provide information on how to assess for and treat such disorders. Strategies and recommendations for treatment will include evidence-based and best practice interventions.
