Featuring Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., The World’s Leading Expert on ADHD
This is a rare opportunity to learn from the world’s leading expert on ADHD. This program will provide detailed, current information on the nature and causes of ADHD in children and teens and the role of executive functioning in the disorder. A neuropsychological theory of executive functioning (EF) and self-regulation will be presented that provides a much more comprehensive view of both EF and of ADHD than the current clinical conceptualization of ADHD as a disorder of attention.
New research exists on the life course of children with ADHD and their adult outcomes that illustrates how impaired EF can negatively impact major life activities. The results of that research have numerous implications for the management of ADHD. Dr. Barkley will discuss the advances in our scientific knowledge of ADHD and their exciting implications for optimizing the effective treatment of children and teens having ADHD. He will also discuss the science-based treatments for the management of ADHD, its executive functioning deficits, and the impairments likely to arise from the disorder.
