Participants will be able to describe the nature of emotion and emotional self-regulation. Participants will be able to discuss the 7 lines of evidence for the important role of emotional impulsiveness and deficient emotional self-regulation in the core symptoms of ADHD. Participants will be able to summarize the results of research on the impact of poor emotion regulation in ADHD on various domains of functioning in children followed to adulthood and adults with ADHD.Participants will be able to discuss the implications of these findings for diagnosis and treatment of ADHD.
