Description
Workshop 120 is part of Dr. Barry Anton’s Presidential Programming.

Psychologists are faced with countless situations in which they must help determine how much to include minors in decision making about medical and mental/behavioral health care and how to work with families in which parents and minors do not agree. This intermediate workshop reviews the legal, ethical, developmental, and clinical considerations for involving minors in decision making, including relevant science in the areas of adolescent decision making, risk taking, and brain development, and poses a number of clinical case examples for interaction with participants.
Learning Objectives
1. Enhance your framework for determination of minors’ appropriate level of involvement in health care decisions in everyday practice.
2. Recognize adolescent developmental competencies relative to the standard for informed consent.
3. Differentiate the relative importance of legal, ethical, developmental, and clinical considerations for involving minors in health care decisions.
4. Identify the unique skills and roles for psychologists in deciding the appropriate level of involvement of minors in health care decision making.
