In this lecture, you will learn the importance of the Integrative Approach – seeing the child in the context of his/her family, friends, school and community, rather than as a set of symptoms that need to be fixed. Topics will include a discussion of the reasons for the apparent ‘epidemic’ of ADHD and the problems of accurate diagnosis, as well as the benefits and risks of ADHD medications.  Dr. Newmark will then discuss non-pharmaceutical therapies, including:

  • Nutrition
  • Food sensitivities
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Parenting skills
  • School intervention and
  • Other complementary therapies.

Learn more about our Neurodevelopmental Pediatrics practice and Dr. Newmark’s book, ADHD Without Drugs: A Guide to the Natural Care of Children with ADHD, soon to be available as an e-book.

Location:
UCSF Mount Zion Herbst Hall
1600 Divisadero Street
San Francisco, CA 94115
