The student during integrated learn to discern the characteristics of normal development, due to behaviors that characterize adolescence, atypical behaviors in which creep prodromal components of psychopathological symptoms. Learn the methods of intervention in case of onset of psychosis and assess the components that characterize the compilation of a Therapeutic Rehabilitation project. Also learn evaluating assistance with the administration of tests such as SAFE or VADO. The student will learn psychiatric rehabilitation techniques that are used in the various approaches to patients with various psychopathological decompensation conditions.

MM: NEUROPSICHIATRIA INFANTILE
------------------------
Aims of the course are: A. to introduce students to the principles of neurodevelopment in childhood; B. to provide elements related to current methodologies necessary to neuro-psychological evaluation of children through their developmental steps, from early childhood to adolescence; C. To introduce students to clinical conditions with onset in childhood, requiring care and rehabilitation in adulthood. A. to introduce students to the principles of neurodevelopment in childhood. Principles of human neurodevelopment will be illustrated: issues on Central Nervous System Development as Biological Foundations of neuro-psychological development; the concept of the evolution from function to competence will be discussed, and the main trajectories associated with the maturation of human functions in childhood will be outlined; the processes of acquisition of motor, linguistic, cognitive, emotional competences will be discussed and commented with the students. B. to provide elements related to current methodologies necessary to neurodevelopmental neuro-psychological evaluation of children through their developmental steps, from early childhood to adolescence. Principles of Neurodevelopmental evaluations and related tools (Developmental Scale) and Neuropsychological assessment (concept of IQ, cognitive evaluation, adaptive behaviour and its measurement, behaviour rating scales) will be illustrated. C. To introduce students to clinical conditions with onset in childhood, requiring care and rehabilitation in adulthood. Clinical features, major diagnostic approaches, and principles of care and rehabilitation will be given of main Neurodevelopmental Disorders, such as Intellectual Disability, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficits (including the concept of ADHD), Gilles del Tourette syndrome, Psychopathological conditions of possible childhood onset (Anxiety Disorders, Depressive Disorders, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, Psychopathology of Epilepsy).

Development: Definition Development as a genetically determined; factors influencing developmental trajectories: intrinsic factors (e.g. CNS structures organization and connectivity) vs extrinsic factors (pre- and post-natal enviromental cues) 2. Development of CNS Structures as Biological Foundation of Neurological and Psychological functions; Role of the Environment -development of neuromuscular structures, of sensory organs, of CNS; -pre- and post-natal development of functions; -relationship between CNS development, functional activities and enviroment toward the competence maturation -the mature brain from functional standpoints: the cognitive brain, the social brain, the emotional brain 3. Timeline of Development and Onset of Functions: Pre-Natal period; Early Post-Natal period; Pre-School age (2nd and 3d year; kinder school age); School age; Puberty and Transition to Adolescence Definition of Function as compared to Competence: Movement, Cognition, Social Activities and Communication; Emotion and their recognition, Play abilities 4.
