For the eight percent of college students who have ADHD, every day can be a struggle between addressing symptoms and completing assignments. They are less likely to complete their degrees and frequently have lower GPAs. Students—and their parents—are looking for better ways to deal with treatment, school, and social life so they can be successful.
Researchers and university professors Andrea Chronis-Tuscano, PhD, and Michael C. Meinzer, PhD, will discuss how behavioral activation, a cognitive behavioral therapy approach, could improve executive functioning deficits related to ADHD. They have developed targeted interventions for college students with ADHD, using modified behavioral activation to help college students improve time management, organizational skills, and experience less daily stress. They’ll share their strategies to help your college manage ADHD and college responsibilities.
