Supporting Caregivers of Children with ADHD: An Integrated Parenting Program  (CE 3)

Christina Danko, Ph.D and Kelly O'Brien, Ph.D

Please plan to login by 8:40 AM to check-in. We will start promptly at 8:45 AM

Intermediate Level

Parent mental health is often not addressed in evidence-based interventions for children with disruptive behavior disorders, such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Many evidence-based programs for children with ADHD rely on parents to implement treatment. This can be particularly difficult for parents who struggle with their own depression, executive functioning deficits, emotion dysregulation, or other mental health symptoms. Parent mental health impacts the trajectory of children with ADHD and ADHD treatment outcomes, pointing to the importance of providing parents with their own skills so they can better support their child with ADHD.

We will note the importance of asking about and considering cultural and individual differences related to parenting, child behavior, and parent mental health when delivering all elements of the program.

Objectives

1. Describe 3 reasons why integrating a focus on parent mental health yields optimal benefit of parenting interventions for children with ADHD.

2. List principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and organizational skills training that can be used in behavioral parent training, using a flexible and idiographic approach.

3. Demonstrate the use of 2 CBT components, such as behavioral activation and cognitive restructuring, with parents to address parent mental health symptoms and support effective parenting.

4. Describe at least two organizational skills training strategies that can be used with parents to support their ability to implement behavioral parent training skills.
