A 2-day course.
Powerful psychosocial interventions to help young people and those around them.
AD/HD 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'. This course aims to take a dispassionate view of the nature of AD/HD and details what effective psychosocial interventions are available to benefit both young people involved and also those looking after them.
We continuously monitor the quality of our training by obtaining feedback on the two key scales of relevance and presentation from every course delegate. Below are the average ratings for the last ten runnings of this course.
Average Presentation rating: 96%
Average Relevance rating: 92%
