OIST visiting professor to lecture on ADHD

Date Posted: 2012-06-08

Parenting children with ADHD: Different Children, different problems, similar solutions will be the subject of a public lecture offered by the Okinawa Institute of Technology on Saturday, June 16th.

Professor David Daley, an internationally recognized expert in development and evaluation of psychosocial interventions for families with children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and a professor at the University of Nottingham in the United Kingdom, will present the two-hour free lecture starting at 10 a.m. on the 16th. Prof. Daley has devoted much of his career to studying factors that enhance and interfere with effective and enjoyable parenting of children with ADHD.

Prof. Daley is currently involved in research projects evaluating effectiveness of parenting programs specifically designed and developed for children with ADHD. The lecture is organized by Professor Gail Tripp, who heads the OIST Developmental Neurobiology Unit. Reservations can be made to the OIST Children’s Research Center, (098) 966-8814.

The OIST Children’s Research Center is also under Professor Tripp’s leadership. She’s a registered clinical psychologist from New Zealand. Her staff members have advanced degrees in psychology and are experienced in working with children and families in the United States and Japan. The center’s goal is to understand the causes of ADHD. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention, over-activity and impulsivity. Dr. Tripp explains previous research suggests that children with ADHD differ in how they respond to reinforcement, such as being praised, winning or losing points. She says “we are investigating the nature of these differences and how they may contribute to symptoms of ADHD.”

The lecture will take place in the OIST Auditorium, 1919-1 Tancha, Onna-son.
