Returning emotion to its rightful place as a core feature of ADHD serves to better explain the development of comorbid disorders, such as oppositional defiant disorder, as well as various life course impairments. Dr. Barkley will show you how to determine which aspects of emotional adjustment problems in ADHD cases are the result of the disorder, and which are likely to be the consequence of comorbidity or other life course circumstances. He will also address the implications of including emotion in ADHD for its management.
