Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D., is a clinical professor of psychiatry and pediatrics at the Medical University of South Carolina. In the span of his career as a clinical scientist, educator and practitioner, he has written prolifically on the nature, assessment and treatment of Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorders (ADHD) and related disorders.
Dr. Barkley has developed one of the leading theories of executive functioning and its role in the nature of ADHD. From this theory, he has also developed numerous clinical implications concerning the diagnosis and management of ADHD. To learn more, visit russellbarkley.org.
Dr. Barkley's presentation will focus on:
Understanding the nature of ADHD as it relates to each of the five major executive functions: working memory, self-management, emotional self-regulation, self-motivation and self-control
Developing a better understanding of how this theory leads to more effective interventions for individuals with ADHD.
