We have the opportunity for a workshop with Dr Chip Taylor, Fulbright-Palix.
Dr Taylor’s research apparently focuses on understanding the role of knowledge and resilience as protective factors of bullying and ostracism among children and adolescents with ADHD.
I had proposed to Dr Taylor that: on Thursday May 25, 2017, we are hoping he could provide a workshop on bullying to the BCCH psychiatry department. The workshop would be for either 10 to 1130am or 1 to 230pm depending on room availability.
We are interested in hearing about how to apply integration of research into clinical practice and advocating in the school and in community environments. Understanding how he has seen pediatric psychology integrated into mental health systems and how to best collaborate with other health care providers will also be of interest. Depending on time, discussing differences and similarities in training models between the United States and Canada may also be productive.
I’ve talked to the ADHD crew and people are most interested in clinical applications rather than introductory level discussions. Examples of how research has resulted in practical application of helping the children’s social development would be helpful as well as what research he is doing with the Calgary team.
Here are some of the email requests I received:
– Any tips/ideas/insight he can give us on supporting our kids’ social development would be really helpful!
– practical suggestions to help with social interactions, friendships and the social isolation some children experience would be much appreciated
– I would be particularly interested in the clinical applications if any of the social interventions that have been put in place.
– I’d really curious to hear more about the social facet of what he’s looking at.
Please let me know if any of you would be interested in attending, questions you would like addressed, and what time (AM or PM) works better for you. At this time, one person would like it in the morning.
This is an excellent opportunity for all of us and I have limited time to apply for CME credits if it will move forward so early response would be appreciated.
