In this course, you will learn about attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, in adults: a somewhat different presentation than the same disorder for children. Symptoms, causes, and risk factors are discussed, as well as the therapies that are the most helpful and strategies clients can implement for self-care.
About this course
In this course, you will learn about the three subtypes of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and the symptoms of each. ADHD manifests in multiple ways, and many of its characteristics occur in opposing pairs; similarly, the environmentally-induced condition of VAST manifests as multiple unhelpful traits with corresponding helpful ones. The course covers both, along with the causes, risk factors, and neuroscience behind attentional and other ADHD issues. We outline several best practice guidelines and the therapies that are known to help clients manage their ADHD. The final chapter describes numerous strategies that ADHD clients can implement, mostly on their own, to prevail over this incurable but manageable condition.
