Monday, November 28, 2022: Keynote Address for AET 10:00 AM -- 1:00 PM PST In his discussion, Dr. Hinshaw will focus on the confluence of biological risk and environmental/contextual supports essential for understanding ADHD. Next, he will consider how ADHD exists and develops in girls and women. Far from the myth that ADHD is largely if not exclusively a “guy thing,” he will focus on the historical neglect of ADHD in females – and highlight lifespan findings from the Berkeley Girls with ADHD Longitudinal Study to examine the high risk that girls with ADHD incur for depression, low achievement, self-harm, and unplanned pregnancy as they traverse adolescence and adulthood. Included will be important information about the high rates of stigma that are still attached to people with ADHD, especially girls and women. Dr. Hinshaw will conclude with a review of evidence-based treatments for ADHD, along with information on interventions that are often touted but don't meet the evidentiary standards needed.
Stephen Hinshaw, PhD, is a Distinguished Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Berkeley, where he was Department Chair from 2004 to 2011. He is also a Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Hinshaw’s work focuses on developmental psychopathology, clinical interventions with children and adolescents (particularly mechanisms underlying therapeutic change), and mental illness stigma. He has directed research programs and conducted clinical trials and longitudinal studies for boys and—more recently—for girls with inattention and impulse-control problems (who often express many comorbid disorders).
