Speaker:Dr Caroline Stevenson, Clinical Psychologist
Caroline Stevenson graduated from the University of Sydney in 1999 with a Masters degree and a PhD in Clinical Psychology. For her PhD she developed and evaluated the first behavioural treatment program for adult AD/HD. This research has been recognised by the NHMRC, and by international scientists and clinicians, as a milestone in the management of this condition.
Caroline has had an on-going commitment to teaching and research. She has worked at Macquarie University and at The NSW Institute of Psychiatry, most recently supervising the first clinical trial evaluating the effectiveness of the 1-2-3-Magic child behaviour program. She has taught in academic settings on AD/HD, learning difficulties, and child and adolescent behaviour problems, and presented at medical and scientific conferences on these topics. She has also supervised other clinical psychologists in practice, as well as Masters and PhD students. She has been extensively involved with peak community organisations supporting people with AD/HD, currently serving on the board of AD/HD Australia.
Working in a range of clinical settings since graduation, Caroline has amassed an extensive range of experience relating to the management of AD/HD and its associated problems in children, adolescents and adults. This has included working as a clinical psychologist for the Sydney Children’s Hospital Learning Difficulties Clinic, The Prince of Wales Adolescent Service and The Northern Beaches Adolescent Service.
In this workshop, parenting programs for children with AD/HD will be evaluated. It will be argued that clinicians working in this field need to understand the executive functioning difficulties of AD/HD and modify parenting resources. This workshop will have a practical focus and will explain the key parenting strategies that improve functioning in the homes of children with AD/HD.
