Working with Children with ADHD in Private Practice

Understand effective strategies for working with children with ADHD in private practice.  This presentation will have a practical focus and will explain the key strategies that improve functioning of children with ADHD.

Working with children with ADHD is challenging because children with ADHD do not respond, as well as other children, to rewards and consequences.

It will be argued that clinicians working in this field need to understand the executive functioning difficulties that are associated with ADHD and try to remediate children’s cognitive deficits.

A pub discussion is a relaxed opportunity to observe a presentation on an interesting topic related to cognitive behavioural therapy. There are opportunities for the willing to engage in a discussion relating to the topic towards the end of the presentation.

REGISTRATION FROM 6:30pm.

For her PhD, Caroline Stevenson developed and evaluated the first cognitive behavioural treatment program for adult ADHD. This research has been recognised by the NHMRC, and by international scientists and clinicians, as a milestone in the management of this condition.

She has taught in academic settings on ADHD, learning difficulties, and child and adolescent behaviour problems, and has presented at medical and scientific conferences on these topics.  Caroline has also supervised other clinical psychologists in practice, as well as Masters and PhD students. She has been extensively involved with peak community organisations supporting people with ADHD.
