ADHDThis intermediate-level course will give an overview of the current perspectives on Attention Deficit- Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). At this time, there is a significant body of research that supports a genetic link for ADHD and positive response to both behavioral and pharmacological interventions. There is also a body of research that argues that ADHD, as a diagnosis, is nothing more than a fad that supports poor behavior in those with the diagnosis. This course is designed to engage the reader in careful consideration of the materials in order to formulate his or her own opinion with regards to this disorder.

The course is comprised of seven articles and two audiotaped interviews. The first set of documents identifies common symptoms of ADHD, the criteria required for diagnosis of the disorder, the prevalence of ADHD, comorbidity and etiology. The second set of documents summarizes the most common treatments for those with AD/HD. The third set of documents reviews and critiques the trends in mental healthcare that may promote the overdiagnosis of AD/HD and/or perpetuate myths associated with the diagnosis. The final set of documents provides updates for the diagnosis per the newly revised DSM-5 as well as resources and references for those treating AD/HD.
