Description:
Adult ADHD is a mental health disorder that includes a combination of persistent problems, such as difficulty paying attention, hyperactivity and impulsive behavior. Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems. ADHD symptoms in adults may not be as clear as ADHD symptoms in children. In adults, hyperactivity may decrease, but struggles with impulsiveness, restlessness, organization and difficulty paying attention may continue. Join our specialist in Adult ADHD, Dr. Gurdeep Parhar who will help you identify symptoms, and learn to assess your patients/clients using the accepted criteria. He will also help you identify the psychiatric disorders that co-exist in the adult ADHD population, review both the non-pharmacologic and pharmacological options for the treatment of ADHD, and discuss positive outcomes when ADHD is identified and treated in the adult patient population.
