Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Presenter: Anna Dedousis-Wallace

Come and hear about the latest intervention for Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Parent management training (PMT) interventions, such as Triple P, The Defiant Child, and PCIT, are the gold standard for treating children with Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).  However, they have been found to not work for up to 50% of families.

Collaborative and Proactive Solutions (CPS) is a new intervention that is showing promising results as an alternative to parent management training. CPS is a CBT based intervention that is based on the premise that challenging behaviours occur when the expectations being placed on a child exceed the child’s capacity to respond adaptively, and that some kids are lacking the skills to handle certain demands and expectations.

During this pub discussion, you will learn more about the most recent research comparing CPS to PMT. You will also get an introduction to the CPS model and learn more about how you might be able to use it in your clinical practice.

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 6:15pm for a 6:30pm start, upstairs at the Terminus Hotel – this pub discussion will be approx. 1 hour in duration.
