Description:

Have you ever been frustrated by behaviors? Tried everything and nothing seems to work? If so, there’s hope: This half-day session links brain function with behaviors, as informed by research. We explore what happens when people accumulate multiple DSM diagnoses including Attention Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder, Reactive Attachment Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder and others, and why good parenting and professional techniques may be ineffective. An emerging best-practices brain-based approach for developing effective strategies is introduced. Case examples illustrate how it works. The goals is to increase understanding, decrease frustration, and expand options for parenting and professional work with children, adolescents and adults with Fetal Alcohol and other brain-based conditions.
