ADHD is now recognized as a relatively common mental disorder of adults, affecting 4-5 percent of the adult population and accounting for an increasing number of referrals to mental health and family practices in this country. The disorder has a pervasive impact on most major domains of daily life activities, including occupational, educational, and social functioning and health-related behavior. It is therefore imperative that mental health, medical, and educational professionals have as much up-to-date knowledge of this adult disorder and its treatment as possible.
This presentation will provide current information on the nature, comorbid disorders, adaptive impairments, and etiologies of ADHD as it occurs in adults. Dr. Barkley will provide an overview of the most effective treatment strategies focusing particularly on counseling, medication, and workplace/educational accommodations.
