ADHD has been primarily treated with medication for over 30 years. New brain imaging techniques and research into the lifelong course of this disorder have allowed us to better understand and treat the illness. We are also better able to diagnose and treat common comorbid illnesses such as anxiety, juvenile bipolar disorder, and substance abuse. In this workshop you will gain knowledge of the neurobiology and psychopharmacology of ADHD and the most common psychiatric disorders associated with it. Understanding the drugs, their effects on the brain, and common side effects will help those who work with individuals diagnosed with ADHD to manage those side effects and comply with their prescribed medication.
(This is part of the Coaching Children and Teens with ADHD Certificate Programs, but you do not need to be enrolled in the programs to take this workshop.)
