December 2015 Support Group Meeting

You won’t want to miss our December meeting!

On December 1, 2015, from 7-9 PM, CHADD Sacramento will feature a presentation and Q&A from the MIND Institute ADHD Clinic on:

Non-Pharmacological Treatments for ADHD

While medications often play an important role in ADHD treatment, non-medication approaches can also be part of the picture, whether used alone or in combination with pharmaceutical options. Come learn about techniques and approaches that can help people with ADHD manage their symptoms.
The presenters are:

J. Faye Dixon, Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and Clinic Director, UC Davis MIND Institute ADHD Clinic. Dr. Dixon is licensed clinical psychologist. She has a long history in child psychopathology, specifically the areas of depression, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD and learning differences in children. Currently, Dr. Dixon is the Clinic Director of the MIND Institute ADHD clinic and a member of the UC Davis Medical Center Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (volunteer clinical faculty), as well as a MIND Institute faculty member. Dr. Dixon’s clinical and research interests include attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning differences, anxiety, and mood disorders in children.

Julie Schweitzer, Ph.D., Director, Attention, Impulsivity, Regulation (AIR) and ADHD Program, UC Davis MIND Institute. Dr. Schweitzer’s interests include the identification and treatment of attention-deficit/ hyperactivity (ADHD) and related disorders in children and adults using behavioral/neuropsychological and functional neuroimaging methods. Other interests include the use of reinforcement and learning paradigms in imaging as applied to psychopathology. Dr. Schweitzer’s goal is to apply translational research methods using a variety of basic behavioral and physiological techniques to develop novel treatment and preventative approaches to addressing attentional disorders.

The presentation and Q&A (7:00-8:30 PM) will be followed by Networking Time (8:30-9:00 PM).
