Description

Speaker Evening: Katie Frankish, Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist - ADHD & Psychiatric Assessments

$10 at the door

ADHD in children and adolescents can be managed under the care of either a Paediatrician or a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist.

In instances where the child or young person’s diagnosis is unclear or other disorders, emotional difficulties or family factors could be contributing to the child or young person’s symptoms, then an assessment with a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist can be helpful.

In this talk Katie will be focusing on the psychiatric assessment of ADHD and related disorders in children and adolescents and how this can help with the understanding and management of symptoms.

Dr Katie Frankish is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with experience in working with children, adolescents, and families. She completed her medical degree at the University of Sydney and is a Fellow of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists.

She has completed advanced training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and is a Member of the College’s Faculty of Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists. She is currently completing an advanced certificate in Family Systems Therapy with the Family Systems Institute in Neutral Bay.

Dr Frankish has worked in both inpatient and outpatient settings across Sydney including Redbank House at Westmead, the Blacktown Early Access Team and the Northern Beaches Child and Youth Mental Health Service.

She has also worked to help establish a school based program called “Getting on Track in Time” for young children with disruptive behaviour problems in Western Sydney. She is currently working in private practice in Newport on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
