Engaging Parents and Teens with ADHD in Clinical Treatment: The Supporting Teen’s Autonomy Daily (STAND) Model
Presented by Dr Maggie Sibley, University of Washington, School of Medicine
Adolescents with attention, executive functioning, and motivation difficulties often struggle at home, school, and with others. Supporting Teens’ Autonomy Daily (STAND; Sibley, 2016) is an empirically supported treatment program that takes an engagement-focused approach to behavior therapy for ADHD. STAND utilizes a parent-teen model, Motivational Interviewing, and parent-delivered contingency management to reinforce teen use of organization, time management, and planning skills. Population specific issues when treating ADHD in adolescents will also be discussed.
List the major symptoms and impairments experienced by individuals with ADHD during the developmental period of adolescence.
Recognize common treatment barriers for adolescents with ADHD.
Describe the main components of STAND with respect to process and content, as well as the research supporting STAND’s efficacy.
