Behavioral Pediatrics for Advanced Practice Nursing
This course provides the foundation for understanding issues and concepts of behavioral pediatrics which are encountered in the community setting. The potential impact of the child's environment, risk and protective factors, and stressors will be included in the content. Behavioral manifestations fall on a continuum from normal to pathological, including developmental appropriate behaviors, developmental variations, problems, and disorders. Lectures provide the student with the knowledge base to recognize, assess, treat, and refer children with behavioral problems. This is one of three required courses for the subspecialty, Behavioral Pediatrics for Advanced Practice Nursing.
