The Nature and Diagnosis of ADHD

Uploaded by  on Oct 9, 2008

In this video Russell Barkley, Ph.D., discusses the recent advancements in understanding the nature and subtyping of ADHD as well as recent discoveries in what might cause the disorder and medications that might help treat ADHD. This is from the series: M.I.N.D. Institute Lecture Series on Neurodevelopmental Disorders [11/2008] [Health and Medicine] [Show ID: 14660]  It's a long, but excellent video. Some still seem to think ADHD is not a real disorder, and question it's validity. This lecture, along with other works on ADHD by Dr. Barkley, directly address this issue.

As usual, let me warn you that this blog, any of my other blogs, or my web pages are not designed to provide you with an assessment, diagnosis or treatment. If you are concerned you have a health issue such as ADHD, anxiety, depression or Asperger's | autism please see your health service provider, either a medical doctor or Registered Psychologist. What may appear to be symptoms of one disorder can often be caused by another unexpected disorder. Other disorders, such as ADHD, are very likely to exist at the same time as another disorder (called co-morbid disorder) such as anxiety, depressing or OCD. You need to see a professional to find this out. On-line symptom checklists will not provide this, and are often misleading.
