ADHD: Key Knowledge and Skills for Effective Biopsychosocial Intervention

ADHD: Key Knowledge and Skills for Effective Biopsychosocial Intervention is an APT-accredited 3-day ADHD training course from one of the UK's leading providers of mental health training. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (2-day version and refresher courses are also available.)

Executive Summary:

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) has become an increasingly common diagnosis in recent years and is one that can cause confusion and concern in parents and carers. They may already be 'at their wits end' in terms of responding to disruptive behaviour and can then be confronted with entrenched viewpoints about whether medical or psychosocial interventions are most effective – and even which ones are morally 'right'. Even from professionals.

This course therefore takes a dispassionate view of the nature of ADHD, the far reaching problems it can cause for carers. Most importantly though, it details what effective psychosocial interventions are available to benefit both young people involved and also those looking after them.

The course covers:
