Advances in the Understanding and Management of ADHD with Dr Russell A. Barkley

ADHD is among the most common childhood and adolescent behavioural disorders, affecting up to 5-7 percent of the school-age population and 4-5 percent of adults. Research has shown that ADHD is a disorder of the brain's executive functions that provide for human self-regulation across time to anticipate future events. The disorder impairs all major life activities studied to date, including family, peer, community, educational, occupational, sexual, social, driving, and financial domains. It is therefore imperative that mental health, medical, and educational professionals understand the executive functions, how they develop, how ADHD interferes with that development, and how best to address those executive and self-regulatory deficits produced by ADHD.

Today’s instalment is a recording of an excellent seminar by a world-renowned expert in the field – Dr Russell A. Barkley:


This 4 DVD Set will provide a summary of the major advances over the past decade in the nature, diagnosis, life course, aetiologies, and management of ADHD in children and teens.
It also discusses the role of executive functioning and self-regulation in the disorder and what this means for management of ADHD.
Dr Barkley will discuss the advances in our scientific knowledge of ADHD and their exciting implications for optimizing the effective treatment of children and teens having ADHD.
He will also discuss the science-based treatments for the management of ADHD, its executive functioning deficits, and the impairments likely to arise from the disorder.
