Children, Adolescents, and College Students With ADHD is organized by Western Schools and will be held from May 25, 2017 - May 25, 2020.
It is more important than ever that mental health professionals are prepared to treat ADHD throughout the lifespan. This intermediate-level course provides current information to help social workers and mental health professionals recognize, accurately diagnose, and support children, adolescents, and college students with ADHD. Because timely and accurate diagnosis and intervention are critical for maintaining an individual's functioning, it is essential that clinicians stay up to date on the recent advances in assessment and intervention.
The course emphasizes interventions for clients with a childhood diagnosis and for clients who are diagnosed for the first time in adolescence or college. Furthermore, college students are a special sub-group of individuals with ADHD and as such assessments and interventions must be appropriately tailored to the individual's developmental tasks and their environment. Ways to support individuals with ADHD are described for each of the developmental life stages. Case scenarios throughout the course illuminate the key learning points.
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
