Free Webinar Replay: The Anxiety and Depression Hiding Within: How to Recognize and Treat Latent Co-occurring Conditions

Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D., explains how to identify anxiety and depression, and create an effective treatment plan.

A note about this webinar: This webinar is part of a series designed for ADHD clinicians. Although all are welcome to view the replay, non-clinicians may want to notify the professionals with whom they work of this opportunity and share the audio and slide materials.

ADHD doesn’t travel alone. The vast majority of patients with ADHD also have a co-occurring condition like anxiety, depression, or a learning disability. Many times, these overlapping conditions require their own evaluation and unique treatment plan. Yet many doctors and clinicians assume that anxiety or depression are side effects of ADHD or they fail to perform ADHD assessments on patients already diagnosed with anxiety or depression. These failures lead to ineffective treatment plans and long-term health risks.

In this webinar presentation, Roberto Olivardia, Ph.D., discusses:

  • How to correctly screen for co-occurring anxiety and depression in patients with ADHD
  • How to recognize the red flags of an undiagnosed overlapping condition
  • The symptoms of depression and anxiety disorders, and how to distinguish them from ADHD
  • How depression or anxiety affects ADHD symptoms
  • How ADHD can actually lead to, or affect, depression and anxiety
  • How medication can tell a doctor and a patient that the diagnosis is wrong
  • How to devise a treatment plan when ADHD exists alongside anxiety or depression
