Advances in the Management of ADHD: Evidence-Based Medications and Psychosocial Treatments



The past 10-15 years have witnessed a number of major developments in the medications and delivery systems available for the management of ADHD.  Dr. Russell Barkley discusses the types of medications now available for ADHD management and the various delivery systems developed to extend the effectiveness of the medications across the day.  For each medication, he will present the major beneficial effects and side effects.  He will also discuss various issues clinicians should consider in selecting medications to use with a patient with ADHD, such as those issues related to the social context, the patient’s characteristics, and any comorbid conditions that may exist. 

This recording then moves on to an overview of the science-based approaches to the psychosocial management of ADHD.  It also discusses those treatments that, while popular, have little evidence for their effectiveness in managing the disorder.
