Reviewing the definition of Seriously Emotionally Disturbed - a listening session with SAMHSA

2 Comments | Posted

Network faithful take note - If you want to be part of the national discussion to review the current definition of "Seriously Emotionally Disturbed" then you will want to pay attention to this announcement from SAMHSA:

A webinar will be held on Monday, March 31, 2014 2:30 pm Eastern Daylight Time to begin this discussion. 

Dr. Gary Blau will introduce an effort by SAMHSA to review the current definition of Serious Emotional Disturbance (SED). The goal of the review is to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the definition and the implications if the definition is revised. This Interactive Dialogue & Listening Session will provide an opportunity for constituents to provide thoughtful feedback on this topic. Register for the webinar and come prepared with your thoughts and ideas.
