The Disruptors: A Deep Dive into ADHD

AACAP/CACAP 2022 Annual Meeting
Toronto, ON
The Disruptors is a 90-minute, award-winning documentary about Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and the people who have it. The documentary includes major experts in the field, many famous people who have ADHD, and five stories of people with ADHD from diagnosis through treatment. Executive producer of the film and experts in the field discuss this most common neurodevelopmental disorder to encourage understanding of a strengths-based approach to treatment. Participants gain new understanding of what it is like to live with ADHD and a new perspective on working with those with the disorder. Filmmakers hope that The Disruptors can reach and educate youth in underserved communities where there is often little access to information about ADHD and limited clinical help due to the lack of access to doctors with substantive understanding of ADHD.

Family is the Best Medicine: Strengthening Family Therapy Skills to Support Children in Crisis

AACAP/CACAP 2022 Annual Meeting
Toronto, ON
Discussion focuses on addressing clinical problems as challenges for the family to resolve with the help of the child and adolescent psychiatrist, and on promoting effective family function and recovery. Cases presented by participants are used to identify common themes voiced by families that are “stuck” and develop questions and approaches that enhance closeness, encourage effective limits, and build understanding and support within the family. Participants develop skills to effectively engage with the family, build family-therapist collaboration, enhance flexibility, promote appropriate distance in relationships, and resolve conflicts to ensure cooperation that builds family hopefulness and improves family function in relation to the presenting problem.
