Translating emotions: crucial aspects of a psychiatric interview with children and adolescents
This talk will be presented by Dr. Milena Armani, MD, Assistant Professor, board certified child and adolescent psychiatrist from Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Armani would like to share her perspective not only as a mental health provider, but as a native Portuguese speaking immigrant working primarily with English speaking families. Her goal is to help interpreters become more effective by familiarizing themselves with the structure of a psychiatric interview and by understanding what a mental health provider is typically trying to learn from the patients and their families. In her work, she recognizes that language and cultural differences have an essential role when treating diverse populations and that interpreters can be particularly helpful by bringing their own background experience to the table.
Dr. Milena Armani was born and raised in Brazil and moved to the US in 2009. She earned her medical degree from the University of São Paulo in Brazil. She completed her residency training in general psychiatry at the University of Kansas and finished her fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Emory University, where she served as a chief resident. Dr. Armani is board certified in child, adolescent and adult psychiatry. Dr. Armani’s clinical work focuses on the treatment of ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder), trauma, mood disorders and anxiety disorders in children, adolescents and young adults. She is especially passionate about treating diverse populations. In addition to being a medication management provider, she is a TF-CBT (Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) therapist and is certified in PCIT (Parent-Child Interaction Therapy).
