Course Description

ADHD is one of the most prevalent childhood disorders, and research shows that aggression is an important associated feature of ADHD, and is essential in understanding the impact of the disorder and its treatment.  This brief continuing education course was developed using information from Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Mental Health (CAPMH) in order to summarize data analyzing the extent to which family factors, cognitive factors and perceptions of rejection in mother-child relations differentially correlate with aggression at home and at school for children with ADHD. Data collection methods, results, and conclusions are discussed.

Course Objectives

1. Describe what is known about the relationship between ADHD and aggression, including the role of family factors, parent-child relationships, and cognitive deficits.

2. Summarize the methods used in the study including ADHD diagnosis, dependent and independent variables, and statistical methodology.

3. Compare how various factors impact aggression in children with ADHD at home and at school.

4. Identify how the relationship between parenting and children’s behavior may impact the emergence and persistence of aggression in children.

5. Outline key findings, limitations, and clinical implications of the ADHD/aggression study.
