According to the National Institute of Mental Health, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and it can continue into adolescence and adulthood. Symptoms of ADHD include inability to stay focused or concentrate, difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), also present with executive functioning problems, together with a broad range of difficulties associated with social communication, social interactions, restricted and repetitive patterns of behaviours. Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help manage these conditions by changing the way you think and behave.
This is an interactive practice-based course that aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skill to:
- deliver individual behavioural and cognitive interventions in a flexible and adaptive way using the Young-Smith modular programme to children
- (age 7-12 years) with ADHD, ASD and associated problems.
- teach children strategies and skills via a structured narrative to address key areas of attention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, social skills and relationships, mood and self esteem, and problem-solving.
- develop practice and skills in the delivery of an individual treatment protocol using vignettes in small group exercises.
