Session 11: Advances in Understanding Management of ADHD in Children and Adolescents (Aug 8-9)
ADHD is one of the most common childhood behavioral disorders, affecting up to 5 to 7 percent of the school-age population, accounting for the largest proportion of children referred to mental health programs in this country. Clinicians are increasingly aware that ADHD does not disappear over development and that many individuals with the disorder in childhood will continue to manifest into adulthood. ADHD will persist into adolescence in up to 80 percent of childhood cases, and up to 65-70 percent of these cases into adulthood.
This workshop will provide current information on the causes of ADHD, including neuro-anatomy, genetics, and potential environmental contributors to the disorder. We will also review the implications of current etiological research for understanding and management. We will focus on key developments in research on the most effective treatment treatments for ADHD as well as an overview of treatments deemed experimental and those that have been disproven or remain unproven.
Monday Advances in diagnosis; Update on executive functioning; Importance of emotion in managing ADHD; The other attention disorder: Sluggish cognitive tempo
Tuesday Advances in etiologies and management of ADHD; Optimizing ADHD treatment; The impact of comorbidity
