  • Implications of Depression on Medical Conditions

    Presenter: Anne-Marie Kimbell, PhD, Charles Shinaver, PhD

    Topic(s):

    Depression has been found to be comorbid with a variety of chronic medical conditions. We will briefly discuss several conditions including hypertension (HTN), Diabetes Mellitus (DM), coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF), stroke or cerebrovascular accident (CVA), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD and end stage renal disease (ESRD) found to be associated with depression. We will also consider Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and patients seeking bariatric surgery. A critical possible implication of this comorbidity is the finding in one meta-analysis that depression along with various long term medical conditions predicted increased use of urgent and unscheduled care use while in another meta-analysis this was not the case. We will consider these findings. Finally, we will review the impact of depression upon functioning and caregivers.

  • BASC-3 and ADHD

    Presenter: Cecil Reynolds, Ph.D.

    Topic(s):

    This training will focus on development and application of a comprehensive approach to careful diagnosis and specific interventions for ADHD under the BASC-3 models of assessment and intervention.  The BASC-3 models focus  not just on eligibility, but developing a comprehensive diagnosis and understanding of the student. Differential diagnosis that leads to a process of identification of evidence-based interventions tailored to student needs will be emphasized.  Current DSM 5 criteria are emphasized in the diagnostic process but matching to interventions is also considered important.   Actuarial approaches will be emphasized but the need to integrate these approaches to individual children will also be stressed and approaches to involving parents in the process will be discussed.  A brief discussion of the history of ADHD is given and the controversies surrounding its diagnosis addressed.  Comprehensive behaviorally based differential diagnosis is then emphasized, leading to both psychosocial and educational interventions. The need and means of monitoring treatment effectiveness are also addressed.
