MetadataShow full item record
Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) is a chronic disorder characterized by primary symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and sometimes hyperactivity. ADHD children suffer not only from these primary symptoms, but also from secondary negative impacts including poor peer relationships, increased conflict within family interactions as well as diminished academic achievement and increased classroom disruptions. In order to target these concerns, a 12 week pilot Multifamily Therapy Group curriculum was developed for implementation in a social service agency setting with ADHD children aged ten to twelve and their families. Using the Delphi Method, a panel of experts evaluated the curriculum, treatment process, and modality applicability. Findings and recommendations from the expert reviews will be discussed.
