This course features an evaluation of the contentions for and against classifying ADHD and disruptive behavior disorder as manifestations of mental illness. We will examine the scientific evidence useful in evaluating the widespread beliefs that these disorders are overdiagnosed and that people are being overmedicated. Students will become familiar with prevailing procedures for diagnosis and treatment and some new alternatives. Family and cultural issues in diagnosis and treatment will be emphasized.
