Virtual WPS Meeting - 7/10/22: Adult ADHD: Diagnosis and Treatment through the Lens of Executive Function
Sunday, July 10, 2022, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM EDT
Category: Events

Event Description:

A challenge for clinicians in treating adult clients with ADHD (or identifying patients who may have undiagnosed ADHD ) is in understanding the root of the underlying impairments. A recent shift in our understanding of ADHD focuses on the connection to deficits in Executive Function (EF) and away from a focus on the DSM 5 criteria of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. Executive Function refers to the cognitive functions involved in planning and self regulation.

This program will include information on the components of executive function, the importance of Executive Functions deficits (EFD) in understanding the impact of ADHD on behavior, and how to use the information on the five scales of the Barkley Executive Function Deficit Scales in treatment planning.  


Sunday, July 10, 2022 - 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
**Eligible for 1 FREE CE to all MPA Members**
(Registration is FREE, but required for all attendees)
