Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Adolescents and Adults

No dates are currently scheduled



ADHD often goes undiagnosed in adults and untreated in adolescents.  Research indicates 42% of adults with ADHD have another major psychiatric disorder, further confusing the issue of appropriate diagnosis and treatment.

Whether there is hyperactivity involved or not, the attentional focus is disrupted, causing problems with concentration, organization, time management, and follow through. As a result, interpersonal relationships suffer and performance at work or school is affected.

This course offers valuable knowledge about the brain chemistry of ADHD, allowing you to gain insight into the often misinterpreted behaviors involved.

You will explore positive approaches and adaptations to facilitate success in school or the workplace and in relationships.

The use of medications, therapy, and specific interventions will provide practical strategies for the effective management of ADHD symptoms.

This course is designed for human resource staff, job coaches, counselors, nurses, social workers, case managers, and direct care staff  who work  with adolescents or adults who have ADHD. This course is also helpful to parents, spouses, and family members.
