Research reported by the Center’s for Disease Control (CDC), states that the prevalence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) continue to increase.  In addition, Arguments abound about the over diagnosis or misdiagnosis of ADHD and it’s distinct and troubling symptomatology.

Often parents and teachers describe; “She is in another world and can’t stay focused” or “He bounces off the walls.”  One frustrated grandmother even stated, “I don’t care if he has ABC…DEF or G the boy is just B-A-D and he needs a butt whooping.”  Regardless of the descriptors, ADHD and it’s concomitant symptoms, have taken a toll on children, teens, parents, teachers and the medical and behavioral health care system.

This training will account for the complex nature of ADHD and will outline clear steps to make a careful and accurate diagnosis, it will also teach substantiated best practice treatments, and introduce innovative approaches and promising research including the hunter gather theory and its implications.

3rd Annual ADACBGA Conference Embracing and Enhancing Clinical Competency

Save the date for the annual Alcohol and Drug Abuse Certification Board of Georgia Conference in Atlanta, GA, June 11-12, 2015. Our goal is to provide competency-based certification that will assure quality care for those affected by substance abuse. Certification offers evidence that standards of knowledge, skill, experience, and demonstration of competency have been met. Last year, the 2nd ADACBGA Conference sold out with over 230 participants, and we have moved to a larger venue as we project a larger attendance in 2015.

10TH ANNUAL YOUTH VIOLENCE PREVENTION CONFERENCE

Creating Kooler Climates for Kids: Turning Up the Heat on School Violence Prevention

Target Audience

Case managers, social workers, psychologists, licensed professional counselors, mental health professionals, clinicians, nurses, health and human service practitioners, teachers, school administrators, clergy, law enforcement, parents, community organization workers, any professional working or planning to work with youth.

Description:
Safe, nonviolent school environments are essential to the academic, social and emotional development of all children, but bullying, dating violence, physical and sexual assault, gang activity, gun violence and hate-motivated violence remain common challenges for many schools today. Traditional approaches to these challenges, including expulsion, suspension, isolation, detention and transfer, while perhaps achieving some immediate success with incident control, have not necessarily led to improvements in the overall school environment, and are giving way to newer , and more inclusive, behavioral and environmental modification strategies tailored to the unique needs of the student, the school, and the community. These newer strategies require that each school examines and assesses its own environment or climate as a first step towards designing the appropriate prevention strategies, securing the necessary resources, and enlisting the help and support of all partners needed to implement a successful intervention. What works for one school, may not work for another school just a few blocks away. This year’s conference brings together experts in youth violence prevention and youth education to explore how we, as parents, students, teachers, administrators, law enforcement personnel, mental health specialists, and so many others, individually, and collectively, can contribute to building and sustaining the kinds of environments within our schools where violence is viewed as unacceptable, and where our children can feel safe, secure and supported.
