Executive Function and Symptom Reduction in Youth Receiving Home-based Treatment With Collaborative Problem Solving

2019-10-16 10:39:39 | BioPortfolio


In this project, the investigators will extend prior results of parent-reported executive function growth and symptom reduction in children receiving home-based treatment with the Collaborative Problem Solving treatment approach (CPS), with a particular focus on examining children who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The investigators will examine executive functioning (EF) of children who are receiving CPS, measuring EF with parent-report and objective computer-based tasks, at two timepoints: at the start of treatment and approximately four months later, and will collect symptoms at these plus three additional timepoints: at discharge, 6-months after discharge, and 12-months after discharge.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instructional use of examples or cases to teach using problem-solving skills and critical thinking.

Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
