Prof Melanie Turner on ADHD in Children & Adolescents.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental conditions compromising childhood development. Although it has been conceptualized as a disorder of childhood for about fifty years, up to 90% of children with ADHD continue to experience some symptoms into adolescence and adulthood. In this webinar, Prof Melanie Turner will cover key aspects of diagnosing and therapeutically working with children and adolescents exhibiting symptoms on the ADHD spectrum. Seen through a psychiatric lens, she will also explore the overlap with other causes of similarly presenting challenging behaviours and mood changes, and how to work with those overlaps.
Prof Turner will also discuss non-medication options for ADHD treatment, especially psychotherapy. In addition to her practice-based experience, she will bring a contemporary research lens to focus on the comparative effectiveness and efficacy of the various medication and non-medication approaches. She will also discuss the significance of working with families, and the importance of communication with schools and Allied Health to align on ADHD treatment approaches. Being a topic of broad interest, the webinar will allow ample time for Q&A.
Venue: Online. Includes access to recording for 30days.
Date: Wednesday, 17th of April, 2024
Time: 6.30 p.m to 8.30 p.m (Sydney/Melbourne Time)
