About this Event
This event is part of the Master of Social Work (MSW) juvenile justice class John Gallagher is teaching during the spring 2023 semester at Morgan State University. It is a service-learning class where students learn about juvenile justice by doing an activity that gives back to the community. Accordingly, students will be presenters during this event, and they will select a non-profit agency that supports juvenile justice reform and NASW-MD will donate 100% of the profits from this event to the agency. Furthermore, Brooke Siem, author of May Cause Side Effects and Food Network Chopped champion, will share her lived experiences and mental health advocacy work related to the use of antidepressant medications with juveniles. The presentations will address timely and important topics related to juvenile justice reform, including best practices in treating Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD) and Conduct Disorder, potential unintended consequences related to the use of antidepressant medications for juveniles, and the role of juvenile drug courts in justice reform.
