This is part 2 because there is a new Child Medication Fact Book for Psychiatric Practice, Second Edition that just came out.
Dr. Feder is here to tell us the purpose of the book and to walk us through his new algorithm for supporting autistic kids.
Dr. Joshua Feder is a child and family psychiatrist using the Developmental, Individual differences, Relationship-based (DIR) model as an DIR Expert, and an advocate with the DIR Coalition of California. He has conducted neutral, non-industry based pharmaceutical research funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and is editor and chief of the Carlat Child Psychiatry Report, a non-pharma and transparency-based newsletter and continuing education vehicle for child psychiatrists, helping craft training for child psychiatry in the use of medications.
Dr. Feder is also an adjunct faculty with Fielding Graduate University in the PhD program in Infant and Early Childhood Development where he also heads up the Infant and Early Childhood Development Research Incubator. His latest role is the Medical Director of Positive Development, which we also did a podcast on!
