Louisiana State University School of Medicine, Health Sciences Center: Department of Psychiatry

The LSU Department of Psychiatry is committed to the finest quality medical student education, post-medical school training for residents and fellows in all aspects of psychiatry: general psychiatry, infant, child and adolescent psychiatry, emergency and administrative psychiatry, and consultation liaison psychiatry. This department also provides excellent graduate and post-graduate training in social work and psychology. The department provides major leadership in research spanning our field and makes important advances in the understanding of psychopharmacology and neuroscience, developmental disorders, psychodynamic psychiatry, and treatment of children and families exposed to community and family violence. It plays key roles related to transmission and treatment of HIV infection, prevention of school failure and incarceration among high risk youth and maintaining mental health in our senior citizens, to name but a few areas. Their nationally recognized Harris Infant Mental Health Center trains professionals in several states to understand and treat the most vulnerable of our children and their families during the first three years of life. The Harris Center for Infant Mental Health of the LSUHSC Department of Psychiatry is devoted to the study and treatment of infants and young children. The goals of the Center are: - To develop a crucial number of mental health professionals locally, nationally, and internationally trained to evaluate and treat infants. - To develop networks to provide support for individuals working with infants. - To bring together individuals from different mental health disciplines who will have a core set of skills and knowledge to assess and treat infants. - To develop expertise in evaluation and treatment for high-risk infants. - To educate the judges, lawyers and court personnel on the effects of violence on young children.
