Description

Childhood diagnoses of cognitive, affective, and behavioral disorders are increasing in both absolute numbers and as a proportion of the total childhood population in the United States, and they are imposing a large and growing burden on children, youth, and families. However, the adoption of evidence-based interventions that have proven effective in preventing and treating behavioral health disorders in children has been slow. A contributing factor for this slow adoption may be that current training in many fields involving the behavioral health of children is falling short of meeting their needs.

To examine workforce development across the range of health care professions working with children and families, as well as to identify innovative training models and levers to enhance training, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine held a workshop in November 2016. The main objective of the workshop was to examine the development and training of an integrated health care workforce that can promote family-focused behavioral health care for children and their families. This publication briefly summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
