Release Date: November 25, 2016

Expiration Date: November 25, 2019

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) has finally provided much needed clarity on attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is more important than ever that social workers and mental health professionals be prepared to treat ADHD throughout the lifespan. This intermediate-level course has been developed to educate social workers, counselors, psychologists, and marriage and family therapists, and to bring a deeper understanding to the research, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD in individuals of all ages.

This course provides clinicians with a rich description of the disorder's historical roots and evolution. Multimodal treatment programs are crucial to addressing the symptoms of ADHD including the use of psychopharmacology, psychotherapy, and complementary and alternative treatments. These multimodal treatments are described in the course with attention paid to stimulant and non-stimulant medications, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. Case scenarios throughout the course illuminate the presentations of ADHD and various treatments options.
