Speaker Series: Translating Developmental Psychopathology Findings to Develop Interventions for Individuals with ADHD Across the Lifespan

Speaker:

Andrea Chronis-Tuscano, Ph.D., Professor, University of Maryland

Based on the presentation, participants will earn one free continuing education credit and be able to:

1. To demonstrate the role of parenting, parent psychopathology and other environmental factors that predict the course of comorbidity and impairment in children with ADHD.

2. To describe novel interventions targeting these risk and protective factors.

3. To provide a more comprehensive model for treating individuals with ADHD within their environmental context.

About the speaker:

Dr. Chronis-Tuscano’s research focuses broadly on understanding early predictors of developmental outcomes for children with Attention- Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (including depression and alcohol/substance use) and developing novel treatments which target these early risk and protective factors. Much of this research has addressed issues related to maternal parenting and psychopathology (namely, maternal depression and ADHD). A secondary line of research aims to examine the trajectory of young children displaying early behavioral inhibition, including the development of psychopathology, and to intervene by targeting key moderators of outcome (e.g., parenting and social relationships).

Dr. Chronis-Tuscano is the President-Elect of the International Society for Research in Child and Adolescent Psychopathology; Associate Editor of the Journal of Consulting & Clinical Psychology; Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science; Fellow of the Association for Behavioral & Cognitive Therapies (ABCT); former Associate Editor of the Journal of Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology; Scientific Advisor to the NIMH Outreach Partnership with the State of Maryland; and a member of the CHADD Professional Advisory Board. She is the recipient of multiple NIH grants and has served on several NIH review committees relevant to developmental psychopathology and interventions.

About the speaker:

 

Anthony Spirito, Ph.D., ABPP is Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.  He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Virginia Commonwealth University and completed his predoctoral and postdoctoral training at Boston Children’s Hospital. Dr. Spirito has published over 200 peer-reviewed articles and his work has been supported by NIMH, NIAAA, and NIDA as well as foundations, such as the American Foundation for Suicide Research. Along with colleagues at Brown, he recently completed three treatment development studies to determine if combined approaches, e.g., exercise and CBT, can increase the efficacy of treatment for adolescent depression.  Dr, Spirito and colleagues developed an integrated, intensive CBT protocol for adolescents with substance use disorders, NSSI, depression, and suicidality as well as their parents. He and his colleagues just completed a test of this protocol in a large efficacy trial with a sample of adolescents discharged from inpatient psychiatric care. He also just completed a trial of the same protocol in an Intensive Outpatient Program in a community mental health clinic where mental health counselors were trained in the protocol.
