This webinar will give participants insight into the evolving roles of biology and environmental factors in developmental psychopathology.

During this webinar participants will:

  • Examine the principles underlying the concept of a “neurodevelopmental disorder."
  • Consider how most psychiatric disorders in children and adults may represent “neurodevelopmental disorders.”
