Saskia van der Oord, Barbara van den Hoofdakker en Marjolein Luman geven lezingen tijdens een symposium op APSARD 2021. Het symposium gaat over psychosociale interventies bij ADHD. Een korte samenvatting is hieronder te lezen.


Behavioral interventions for youth with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) effectively improve parenting and reduce child problems, although there is still room for improvement as effect sizes are moderate. Moreover, it is largely unknown what elements work within these behavioral interventions, and for which families these interventions are more or less effective. Knowledge on this is important to improve effectiveness, to tailor and provide treatments to specific groups and to guide the development of new treatments.

This symposium with research from the European PAINT (Psychosocial ADHD Interventions) consortium focuses on efforts to clarify what works for whom in behavioral treatment of children with ADHD, and how treatments can be tailored to specific subgroups. The symposium includes studies using different methods to uncover these questions, amongst which micro-trials in which different elements of behavioral parent and teacher training are compared on daily rated problem behavior, meta-regression analyses in which it is explored which elements of behavioral parent and teacher training are related to child-and parenting outcomes, and an individual participant data analysis (IPDMA). In this IPDMA (a worldwide collaboration and data-sharing project) it is explored amongst 21 datasets, containing 2233 participants, which factors moderate behavioral treatment outcome. This symposium gives clinicians and researchers clear indications on what elements of behavioral parent and teacher training are related to effectiveness, and for whom behavioral interventions are more-or less effective.
