Texas Rebuild: Addressing Disruptive Behavior and ADHD in Youth

July 15, 2021

NEEDS STATEMENT

As many as 20 percent of children and adults have significant mental and behavioral health concerns at any given time. Exposure to a disaster like Hurricane Harvey and the trauma that comes with it often exacerbates pre-existing issues and/or brings new issues to the surface, with post-traumatic stress often presenting as “other” mental illnesses, including anxiety, ADHD, depression, school conduct issues or even physical illness. The result is a large and complex problem that must be addressed. During January of 2021, Texas Children's Hospital department of Psychology disseminated a Behavioral Health Integration Needs Assessment. Respondents reported having interests in filling knowledge deficiencies in Disruptive Behavior, ADHD, Developmental Delays (ASD, PDD), Academic and Learning Problems, Anxiety and Mood, Weight Management and Nutrition, amongst others.

This activity will discuss components of evidence-based treatments for disruptive behavior and ADHD in youth.  This activity seeks to educate providers on how to respond to these symptoms and evidence based recommendations providers can make. There will be time dedicated to answer questions related to disruptive behavior and ADHD in Pediatric Healthcare.

Target Audience

This activity is for Pediatricians and primary care providers (family practitioners, NPs, PAs) who treat children and adolescents, RNs, LVNs, LPCs, Social Workers, and Administrative leaders.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of the activity, the participants should be able to:

  • Describe components of evidence-based treatments for disruptive behavior and ADHD in youth
  • Identify conditions that often co-exist with disruptive behavior and/or ADHD and techniques for identifying these comorbidities
  • List community resources providing treatment for youth with disruptive behavior and/or ADHD
