    Research is increasingly documenting the effects of reproductive hormones in the diagnosis and treatment of anxiety and depression. Is it Premenstrual Syndrome, anxiety, or both? In this workshop we will explore these kinds of differential diagnoses. You will learn how efficacy of medication in females depends on the stage of the reproductive life cycle and how moods are affected by hormones in the adolescent female brain. You will also learn how methods of treatment should differ for women because of hormonal effects on the brain. Those disorders specific to women, such as post-partum mood disorders, Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder, and more will be included in the discussion.
