March speaker: The World’s foremost authority on ADHD – Dr Russell Barkley – 14 Best Principles for Raising a Child with ADHD
Our March online speaker is:
Dr Russell Barkley – 14 Best Principles for Raising a Child with ADHD
As he approaches the end of his career, Dr. Barkley, the world’s foremost authority on ADHD, decided to distill the major principles that parents need to know to raise a child with ADHD to be a more contented and effective individual while sustaining the bond of the parent-child relationship. From reviewing all newly published research on ADHD weekly, to his familiarity with the extensive past research on the disorder, from his teaching thousands of professionals worldwide through more than 800 invited lectures across more than 30 countries, and helping thousands of families directly with their ADHD children in his practice, he pulls together the essential ideas parents need to know. Some of these deal with parent’s attitude or mental stance toward their child and toward ADHD, others deal with how best to address the deficits in executive functioning and self-regulation, and still others address behaviour management issues. His lecture is based on his recently published book of the same title (2021, Guilford Publications). A truly seminal lecture that has yielded standing ovations from appreciative audiences internally, it is one professionals and parents do not want to miss.
Please note that due to the time difference between the US and Australia, Dr Barkley has pre-recorded this lecture for ADHD Support Australia and will not be speaking live.
