In your practice, you will find clients/patients with an ADHD diagnosis who prefer not to take medication. There are various reasons for this – and in this seminar recording you will learn these reasons, and you will learn what other treatment options are available. The more you know the “whys” of your client’s choice of treatment, the better quality of care you can provide them. You will learn about the medications available for treating ADHD, including the benefits and side effects. You will learn the myths surrounding medication, and how to help your client/patient make the most informed choice about their treatment.
Not only will you learn the most common non-medication treatments for ADHD in this seminar recording, you will also learn the safety and efficacy of each treatment. This information is very valuable when considering referring a client/patient for ADHD treatment. You will also learn how much these treatments cost, and if the possible benefits outweigh the financial impact on the client/patient.
The use of nutraceuticals/supplements will be discussed – both how they can impact the central nervous system and why it is important to find a producer with good quality assurance. You will also learn how diet can make a difference in treating ADHD – but not in the way you might think. You will also learn more about the research purporting a link between pesticides and ADHD. Dr. Sarkis, a psychotherapist and published author with more than 15 years of experience in treating ADHD, will show you the path to determining the best ADHD client/patient treatment.
