For the eight percent of college students who have ADHD, every day can be a struggle between addressing symptoms and completing assignments. They are less likely to complete their degrees and frequently have lower GPAs. Students—and their parents—are looking for better ways to deal with treatment, school, and social life so they can be successful.
Researchers and university professors Andrea Chronis-Tuscano, PhD, and Michael C. Meinzer, PhD, will discuss how behavioral activation, a cognitive behavioral therapy approach, could improve executive functioning deficits related to ADHD. They have developed targeted interventions for college students with ADHD, using modified behavioral activation to help college students improve time management, organizational skills, and experience less daily stress. They’ll share their strategies to help your college manage ADHD and college responsibilities.
Some teens and adults get frustrated because they don’t have the improvements they expected from their treatment for ADHD. In this webinar, Dr. Thomas E. Brown will discuss 4 problems that may interfere with successful treatment for teens and adults with ADHD. 1) Lack of a clear understanding of the many ways ADHD can impact daily life; 2) inadequate “fine tuning” of medication for ADHD; 3) Ignoring problematic co-occurring disorders; 4) insufficient interpersonal support. Dr. Brown will describe ways to address these common problems to improve effectiveness of treatment for teens and adults with ADHD.
