Clinical Innovations in Treating ADHD among Adolescents
Presented by: Aaron Hogue, Ph.D.

Monday, November 3, 2014


ADHD is highly prevalent among adolescents in behavioral treatment and associated with myriad deficits in school functioning. Yet behavior therapists have few developmentally appropriate tools for addressing school problems in this group. This presentation will introduce an innovative clinical protocol designed for use by behavior therapists to support adolescents with ADHD and their families: Changing Academic Support in the Home for Adolescents with ADHD (CASH-AA). CASH-AA is a family-based intervention that targets home environment, adolescent skills, and family-school partnership characteristics in order to improve school performance.


This presentation will introduce:

  • Extensive psychoeducation in basic ADHD facts, executive functioning characteristics, and medication issues for adolescents with ADHD
  • Evidence-based motivational interventions to increase adolescent school performance
  • Behavioral training interventions to promote enhanced homework planning and organization skills in the home


Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn research-based strategies for increasing academic performance among teens with ADHD.

Aaron Hogue, Ph.D. is Associate Director of Health and Treatment Research at the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University. He is a Clinical Psychologist whose clinical and research interests include the adoption and sustainability of empirically supported behavioral treatments for adolescent substance abuse, combined behavioral and pharmacological interventions for teens with co-occurring ADHD and substance use problems, and neurodevelopmental processes that influence risky adolescent behavior.

Target audience: Parents and other caregivers of children and adolescents with ADHD, including professionals who work with them.

Date & Time: November 3, 2014 5:55PM (Doors close soon after) to 7:30PM

Where: 65 East 89th Street, Manhattan (The Parish Office of St Thomas More, between Madison and Park Avenues)

Meetings are free, with a $10 donation requested. Please leave the kids at home. No food, please.

ADHD and Sexuality
Presented by: Sari Cooper, LCSW
Monday, December 8, 2014
What challenges does a partner with ADHD confront in long-term relationships? How can eroticism be enhanced or decreased when attention is flowing yet unfocused? Partners or spouses of people with ADHD can over time take the common behaviors associated with the diagnosis personally leading to hurt, misunderstanding and avoidance of sex.

Without an understanding of how to manage the symptoms, people with ADHD may fall into common habits that shut out their partner/spouse. If folks can harness their natural strengths and engage their partner in novelty, fun and excitement, partners can reframe the ADHD as an enhancer of sexuality rather than a detriment.

In this presentation, you will learn how to:

 Identify the most common sexual dysfunctions associated with having ADHD
 Examine the misunderstandings and rifts between partners that are created through ADHD symptoms
Steps individuals can take to improve their sexual and romantic relationship
Join us for an exciting evening where you will learn about the intersection of Sexuality and ADHD.

Sari Cooper is an LCSW, as well as an AASECT-Certified Sex Therapist who has been helping straight and gay individuals and couples overcome their emotional, psychological and sexual issues for more than 20 years in her NYC private practice. Sari sees clients who are struggling with a variety of issues including: Infidelity, Depression, Erectile Dysfunction, Open Relationships, Compulsive Sexual Behavior, Sexual Abuse, Pain Disorders and Desire Disorders. She is a sought after national expert on relationships and sexuality. She supervises other therapists interested in gaining their Certification in Sex Therapy, as well as those who need general help with sexual issues in their cases.

Target audience: Individuals and couples currently in long term relationships.

Date & Time: December 8, 2014 5:55PM (Doors close soon after) to 7:30PM

Where: 65 East 89th Street, Manhattan (The Parish Office of St Thomas More, between Madison and Park Avenues)

Meetings are free, with a $10 donation requested. Please leave the kids at home. No food, please.
