Synopsis: Following 814 medical visits, pediatric primary care providers (PCPs) endorsed the presence of youth psychosocial problems and whether treatment was provided. PCPs completed measures of psychosocial attitudes and ease of consulting mental health specialists. Parents and youth completed the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire. PCPs were not more likely to identify externalizing disorders compared with internalizing disorders, but were more likely to provide treatment for an externalizing disorder. PCPs were more likely to identify a problem (OR: 9.91, p = 0.01) and deliver any treatment (OR: 8.93, p < 0.00) when psychosocial issues were discussed and the parent endorsed the child imposed burden. PCPs with more negative psychosocial orientation were more likely to inaccurately identify problems and treatment was negatively related to the ability to consult with specialists.
