Course Description:
This course is based on an abridged version of an extensive literature review of evidence-based treatment for ADHD. It includes the abstract, summary and conclusions of our longer more in-depth course on this topic. It is a course designed for an advanced practitioner. It reports on the findings of 78 studies on the treatment of ADHD and includes both pharmacological and non-pharmacological (therapy) interventions with children, adolescents and adults. Long term and short term effectiveness is evaluated as is combination approaches. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), through its Evidence based Practice Centers (EPCs), sponsors the development of evidence reports to improve the quality of health care in the United States. The reports and assessments provide practioners with comprehensive, science-based information on common and new health care technologies. The EPCs systematically review the relevant scientific literature on topics assigned to them by AHRQ and conduct additional analyses when appropriate prior to developing their reports and assessments.

Psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors and marriage and family therapists can benefit from this course. This course may also be helpful for other practitioners, such as midwives and dieticians and nutritionists who work with a children and adolescents.  This couse is appropriate for begining, intermediate and advanced level practitioners who wish to improve their skills in the common mental health problem of ADHD and ADD.
