Program Narrative:
This program will help participants understand the need to broaden assessment and intervention strategies to consider how family dynamics influence pediatric depression. Specifically, the role of enmeshment, family conflict, alliances, discordant parenting and poor individuation will be discussed. Methods to guide family members to promote anti-depression cognitive behavioral change will be addressed.

Learning Objectives: By the end of the session, participants will be able to:
1. Summarize the value of broadening clinical assessment and intervention by including a family systems component.
2. Recognize that family racial, ethnic, and cultural background needs to be included in assessment and intervention.
3. Assess healthy vs unhealthy family dynamics.
4. Explain how enmeshment, family conflict, alliances, discordant parenting, and poor individuation contribute to depressive symptom development
5. Provide guidance to the family member to promote anti-depression cognitive behavioral change.

It will be presented at an intermediate level, meant for those with some prior knowledge of the subject matter.
