Medication is probably the best known treatment for ADHD but it is also the most controversial. We will explore what it means to treat a psychological condition and specifically what it means to take medication that influences one’s thinking. By helping clients/patients identify their beliefs and preferences about medication and treatment in general, you will be better able to help them make a fully considered decision about treatment options which is guided by accurate facts and fits their needs and values. Therapists are in an excellent position to help clients/patients think through their treatment options and explore their biases, just as they help clients/patients make well considered decisions about other matters. It is especially important to help clients/patients explore their decisions to try or not try medication for ADHD because there is so much misinformation about their risks and side effects.


At the end of this E-learning, the learner will be able to:
Objective 1:
Attendees will be able to explain the important difference between facts and opinions and how they are sometimes confused.
Objective 2:
Attendees will be able to explain the ambivalence that some people have about accepting a psychological diagnosis.
Objective 3:
Attendees will be able to describe the impact of having different beliefs about treating physical versus psychological conditions.
Objective 4:
Attendees will be able to identify the many reasons why people choose to start medication or why they decide not to.
Objective 5:
Attendees will examine their own personal beliefs about the various treatment options and will be able to identify how this influences their decision-making process for their clients/patients, students, etc.
