About:

  • Are you a mental health professional, working with neurodiverse clients?
  • Would you like to feel confident in screening and assessing for ADHD in your clients
  • Do you have existing knowledge about assessment, but want to upskill or hone your skills and understanding around ADHD?

Spencer Health are proud to be offering this training, aimed at equipping psychologists with an understanding of ADHD and how it presents in both children and adults, as well as an understanding of best-practice assessment skills and tools to apply in their own assessment. Psychologists interested in assessing and supporting their ADHDer clients need to have a strong understanding of the brain style and the neurochemistry, symptoms of ADHD, and understanding of how ADHD may present in girls and women, understanding of best-practice assessment tools, as well as being confident in their co-occurring and differential diagnosis.

In this 1 day training, participants will:

  • Understand the ADHD brain style
  • Learn how to recognise and assess for ADHD in the therapy room and during initial assessment, including differential diagnosis
  • Understanding how ADHD may present in girls and women
  • Understand best-practice assessment tools to develop an assessment protocol
  • Understand how to interpret assessment tools
  • Writing reports which are neuroaffirming and informative for your client

The overall aim of the workshop is to provide participants the skills, knowledge and confidence to move forward with neuroaffirming assessments for ADHD. The training will count as 6 hours of PD and you will receive a certificate of attendance for your records.
