AACBT NSW: Pub discussion Working with children with ADHD in private practice
- Caroline Stevenson
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.
