Dr. Stephen Hinshaw – ADHD: Causal Factors, Mechanisms, Sex Differences, and Treatment Implications

Stephen Hinshaw is a Professor of Psychology and a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences whose work focuses on developmental psychopathology, particularly ADHD, and mental illness stigma.

He is going to put ADHD in context as it relates to genes, parenting, school, gender, and peers so that you can walk away with a more holistic view of ADHD treatment.

Something that impressed me about Dr. Hinshaw is his breadth of knowledge, drive to reduce the stigma of mental illness, and matter-of-fact presenting skills.

This presentation will provide an up-to-date discussion of current thinking about ADHD--what's biological about it, what's more, psychological in nature; what causal factors entail; and the role of both brains and contexts in shaping how ADHD 'looks' in the world of youth.  

He will also discuss what this means for school interventions, parenting, and medications, and provide a more holistic, multimodal view of treatment and ADHD in context.

Although parents and teachers want to do their best to help their children succeed, it is not always easy to find the best methods to do so. 

We will also discuss the important topic of girls with ADHD, who remain understudied. 

Dr. Steve Hinshaw will also discuss the role of educational policy in fostering the potential for over diagnosis.  All of this will lead to the discussion of optimal medication and behavioral treatments for ADHD, focusing on middle school.
