This approx. 53min CBT@Home webinar was recorded in November 2022.
Have you noticed more clients wondering about ADHD and whether they may have undiagnosed ADHD?
There has been an uptick in understanding ADHD, especially in women. As a result, it is likely we are all needing to be better educated on what this is, how to assess for it, and how to treat and work with adults with ADHD. This webinar should serve to provide an update in the literature around ADHD in adults and some guidance in both the treatment options as well as applying CBT strategies in this population.
The presentation will review the assessment of ADHD in adults. It will consider the treatment options and the evidence base for these, along with other considerations when making such recommendations. Recent publications from the ADHD Report edited by Russell Barkley will be the main source of research data. Some understanding around the Executive Function model used to explain and formulate ADHD will be presented.
The benefit for those who attend may be clarity over the assessment of ADHD in adults, along with the treatment options available. Madeline hopes the webinar provides an understanding around how these different approaches may complement each other. It may also provide the viewer with ideas of how to apply CBT in a more nuanced way to clients who have ADHD compared to the neuro typical clients with anxiety and depression.
