Is ADHD Treatment Effective? | Counseling vs. Psychiatry

This video answers the questions: Is ADHD untreatable? Is there an ADHD epidemic? Is ADHD a real disorder? What works better to treat ADHD: counseling or medication? Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a controversial mental disorder listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual. The recent surge in the number of people diagnosed, the increased use of medication designed to treat ADHD, and the overlap that ADHD has with normal childhood behavior has made this disorder a source of debate.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapies for ADHD


Psychiatrist, Therapist, Social Worker, LCSW, Psychologist... Who Should You See?

Today I define what a counselor, licensed professional counselor, therapist, social worker, psychologist, and psychiatrist are.

When you are struggling with depression, anxiety, an eating disorder, or other various mental health issues; it can be hard to know who to get help from. I talk about their level of schooling and what they are able to do in practice, and how it will feel different to someone going to see them for help. As you will hear, most of these mental health professionals do very similar things, and to you (the client) it won’t feel much different. Licensed Professional Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Social Workers, and Psychologists pretty much do the same thing. They will see you in their office for 50 minutes, listen to you and offer some helpful tools and techniques. The most important thing to remember when picking a mental health professional is that you like them, feel they hear you and understand you, and you know you are working together to get better. That’s it! It doesn’t really matter how much schooling they had or how long they have been practicing, you just need to like them.I also think it’s important to know what their specialties are so that you know you are getting the help you need most. I hear from many of you that feeling like you aren’t getting any better or being given helpful tools can be really frustrating! Finding someone who specializes in what you are struggling with can help lessen the likelihood of that happening.I hope you found this helpful! I know finding the right professional can be scary, difficult, and often confusing. I hope this video helped clear up any confusion around who can do what and who we can look to for help. Please share! You never know who may be wanting to reach out for help and don’t know where to even start.

I'm Kati Morton, a licensed therapist making Mental Health videos!

Evidence-based treatment for ADHD in young children

Did you know the recommendations for treatment of children and youth with ADHD varies depending on the patient’s age? The guidelines for treating young children with ADHD between the ages of 3 and 6 are to provide behavior therapy as the first line of treatment. In this video you will learn to:

• Appreciate the many factors that may influence the presentation of ADHD in young children
• Identify specific evidence-based parent and/or teacher administered behavior therapy options
• Describe the importance of tracking and monitoring patients throughout the treatment process
