OPQ Accredited RE02318-17 (6 hrs)
ADHD is a neurological condition, but it has significant psychological effects on how a person sees himself or herself, addresses challenges, and interacts with others. While standard therapy techniques can be beneficial, therapists who better understand the many effects of ADHD on a person’s life and mindset will be much more effective, whether in individual, couples, or family therapy.Objectives:
- Attendees will be able to assist clients with understanding, accepting, and integrating a diagnosis of ADHD, whether in themselves, a romantic partner, or a child.
- Attendees will be able to assist clients to make well informed, well considered choices about treatment options.
- Attendees will be able to address the maladaptive coping mechanisms that are common to those with ADHD and help them create a resilient mindset.
- Attendees will be able to work with teens and young adults and their parents to handle greater independence more responsibly and negotiate appropriate levels of parental involvement, and attendees will be able to help clients improve their relationship and sexual functioning and satisfaction by creating better balance in the relationship
