Helping Students with ADHD SUCCEED in College: Applying Behavioral Activation and Motivational Interviewing Techniques (CE 3)

Michael Meinzer, PhD & Andrea Chronis-Tuscano, PhD

Please Plan to Arrive by 8:30am. We will start promptly at 8:45am

Intermediate Level: (CE 3)
A basic familiarity with motivational interviewing, behavioral activation, and ADHD will be assumed.

This CE class is offered via live webinar as well as in-person. Please select the ticket type that you prefer.

Approximately 2-8% of college students have ADHD and are at risk for a host of detrimental outcomes including lower GPA, school dropout, and comorbid psychopathology (e.g., depression, alcohol use). Despite the clear indication from emerging research of the need for interventions for this population, there are few published programs for college students with ADHD, and none specifically targeting problematic alcohol use. Moreover, brief motivation-based alcohol interventions (BMIs) that generally have been successful for college students show limited benefits among individuals with elevated impulsivity and poor self-regulation, both hallmark traits of ADHD, calling for the need to modify BMIs for this vulnerable group.

Behavioral activation (BA) aims to increase individuals’ contact with valued environments through efforts to increase rewarding experiences and goal-directed behavior. Based on its core components that focus on planning and accountability, BA has clear relevance for addressing ADHD-related executive functioning deficits. BA also reduces negative affect and increases positive affect through overt behavior change, which is critical for this population given high rates of comorbid mood disorders.

Toward the goal of developing targeted interventions for college students with ADHD, we modified brief BA to increase relevance to college students with ADHD and integrated this approach with BMI.


Learning Objectives

1. Describe challenges faced by college students with ADHD, including risk for problematic alcohol/substance use.

2. Employ basic principles of Behavioral Activation (BA) targeting college students with ADHD.

3. Infuse principles of Brief Motivational Interventions (BMI) adapted by our group for college students with ADHD into clinical practice

4. Describe challenges encountered when working clinically with college students with ADHD.
