Session 12: An In-Depth Look at Controversial Topics in the Diagnosis, Nature, & Management of ADHD
Dr. Barkley has developed one of the leading theories of executive functioning and its role in the nature of ADHD. From this theory, he has developed numerous clinical implications concerning the diagnosis, assessment, and management of ADHD. Dr. Barkley will review the history of sluggish cognitive tempo and what is known about it from past research. He will address adverse events in the psychosocial treatment for ADHD and how to remedy them. We will also examine numerous domains of major life activities, how ADHD impacts them, and what it means for management across the lifespan.
