The substantial literature on disorders of attention can be contradictory and confusing.
This workshop will examine multiple perspectives from the literature and provide opportunity to discuss connections between behaviors observed in inattention and high stress perception. We will review the behaviors observed in persons with attention challenges and high stress; the neurological processes involved in supporting both forms of behavior; and the environmental-personal transactional influence on behavior. Participants should bring outlines of real-life challenging behavior cases for small group work and discussion. Names/location/personal identifying features of cases must be masked to protect anonymity.
