Hello class,

Hope everyone is enjoying the long holiday weekend! The topics for this week’s discussion are depression and somatization disorder in the pediatric/adolescent population. Please allow the attached document to serve as a guide while you review relevant and evidence-based literature on these topics. After reviewing the literature and videos, please respond to the following four prompts:

1.     What are some pharmacological and non-pharmacological evidence-based treatment options for a child or adolescent diagnosed with a depressive disorder?

2.     What is the FDA black-box warning on antidepressant medications? Does this warning automatically disqualify children and adolescents from being prescribed these medications for depression? Are there any FDA approved medications for depression for the child/adolescent population?

3.     How does somatization disorder differ from other medical conditions and why is it often challenging to diagnose?

4.     What are some common misconceptions or stigma surrounding somatization disorder and how can providers work to overcome them?

Looking forward to reading everyone’s replies! – Group #1
