Assessment and treatment of ADHD
Ellen B. Braaten, PhD - Associate Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School
This seminar will offer an in-depth review of the latest research and advances in ADHD, including assessment of ADHD and comorbidities, behavioral interventions, neuropsychology and genetics. While the focus will be on pediatrics, a development-lifespan perspective will be used. Learning Objectives would include:
- Recognize the presentation, diagnosis, comorbidity, and current treatment options for individuals with ADHD.
- Review the presentation of ADHD across the life span, risk factors related to the disorder (with a specific emphasis on the role of processing speed), gender, and genetic contributions of ADHD
- Differentiate common co-morbid conditions, specifically learning disabilities, substance use, mood disorders, and anxiety.
- Review empirically-validated therapies for ADHD, including school-based services, family treatment, individual treatment, cognitive-behavioral, integrative, and multi-modal interventions.
