Description
Workshop 140 is part of Dr. Nadine Kaslow's Presidential Programming.

Psychologists are faced with countless situations where they must help to 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 clinical case examples for interaction with participants.

Learning Objectives
1. Enhance your framework for determining 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.
