There are new studies on medications for psychiatric disorders in youth and many new medications which have been approved for ADHD.  This presentation will review the medical update and clarify where there is still a place for skill instruction and practice.

Dr. Pierce is a Child, Adolescent, and Adult Psychiatrist currently in Private Practice, Clinical Associate Professor of Child Psychiatry at Northwestern University, and Distinguished Life Fellow of the AACAP and APA.  She helped develop the American Academy of Pediatrics evidence-based guidelines on ADHD in 2011 with the ADHD toolkit, booklet, and ADHD book for parents, and worked on the AMA guidelines for treatment of Child Depression.  She began a therapeutic day school, established a child outpatient clinic, and directed a Partial Hospitalization Program.
