About the presentation: ADHD is a complicated disorder with a fairly high degree of individual variation.  This lecture will present a broader conceptualization of ADHD across the lifespan and the role it plays in everyday life with this population, raising questions of its frequent placement as a secondary diagnosis. Dr. Pflieger will also discuss evaluation for ADHD and introduce some therapeutic strategies and resources for working with this population.

About: Trauma Processing Treatments have advanced significantly in recent years, and this type of psychological care carries a unique set of ethical issues. This talk will provide an overview of current topics, ethical pitfalls, and resources for navigating the often complicated terrain of helping trauma survivors heal. Given the brevity of the talk, it will not provide an in-depth analysis, but rather increase awareness and provide useful follow-up resources. It is intended that the application of content will help providers avoid entering into ethically problematic situations as well as increase consultation seeking. There are no known risks to attendees beyond mild psychological distress related to exposure to trauma case examples. It is expected that this exposure is consistent with existing types of occupational stress

About the presenter:  Ashley Greenwell, Ph.D. Clinical Psychology, has worked in the field of trauma for 15 years and is the Clinical Director of UCEBT. She also previously served as a core Ethics Team member, consulting for Veterans Affairs on issues of Bioethics.
