Advanced Assessment and Treatment of Attention Deficit Disorders
This advanced workshop is designed for psychologists who have completed at least basic professional training in ADHD and have experience in assessment and treatment of this disorder in children and/or adults. It will review recent research studies that support the reconceptualization of ADHD as developmental impairment of executive functions, the cognitive management system of the human brain. Participants will consider how this new model of ADHD helps to explain the frequent co-occurrence of ADHD with various other disorders. They will also design treatment plans for patients with ADHD complicated by comorbidities and various psychosocial factors.
