Introduction to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Adult ADHD (3 CEU's)
Friday, April 22, 2022
Category: COAP

Presented by Dr. Robyn Migliorini

Workshop Overview:  Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental syndrome characterized by impaired executive functioning – the self-management system of the brain.  Once considered a childhood condition, we now understand that ADHD has pervasive and often lifelong impacts on thinking, emotions, and behavior. For adults with ADHD, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT-ADHD) has emerged as an evidence-based treatment designed to improve coping and reduce functional impairment.

 This workshop will provide mental health clinicians with an overview of CBT-ADHD, from its theoretical underpinnings to its practical application. First, Dr. Migliorini will demonstrate a cognitive-behavioral case conceptualization process tailored for adult ADHD. This framework will then be used to understand the cognitive distortions and maladaptive behavioral patterns associated with this condition. Specific CBT-ADHD intervention techniques will be introduced and modeled. Finally, Dr. Migliorini will discuss some of the challenges executive dysfunction can pose for the therapeutic process and describe best practices for managing these challenges in treatment.

Learning Objectives:  By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the role of psychotherapy in clinical management of adult ADHD
  •  Conceptualize ADHD within a cognitive-behavioral framework
  • Identify maladaptive thoughts and behavioral patterns commonly seen in ADHD
  • Understand the core intervention domains in CBT-ADHD
  •  Recognize ways that executive dysfunction can impact the therapeutic process and identify tactics for managing these challenges in treatment. 

About the Presenter:  Robyn Migliorini Ph.D. is a licensed psychologist based in Bend, Oregon with specialty interests in brain-behavior relationships and cognitive-behavioral therapy. While treatment of adult ADHD is her primary clinical focus, she also provides therapy for individuals struggling with acquired mild cognitive impairment and for individuals with anxiety disorders. Dr. Migliorini received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology with specialization in neuropsychology from the San Diego State University/University of California San Diego Joint Doctoral Program. Her pre-doctoral internship was at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School in the neuropsychology track. She then completed a two-year postdoctoral fellowship in neuropsychology at the Edith Nourse Rogers Memorial Veterans Hospital (Bedford VA) before relocating to central Oregon to establish her private practice, Connected Cognition, in 2019.
